Promotion Confirmed


Carlton Town Chairman Mick Garton admitted to being delighted for the players and management after the team reached the Nottinghamshire Senior Cup final for the 4th time in 7 years after last nights 2-0 win over Teversal FC at Stoke Lane.

"I am delighted the FA have chosen a venu this year (Meadow Lane) which is fitting for the occasion, we had that the first time when we played at Mansfield Town and lost to Eastwood in 2011 but that as not always been the case with this competition, despite it happening in other areas of the country when other teams compete to be the regional Champions, but credit to the FA for securing the venue and this will be the biggest stage many of our players will have played on and I am delighted for them and Wayne and his back room staff, they work very hard, they really do!"

"We know it will be difficult to go on and win the competition, we appreciate what an excellent side Basford are, there league position and progress in the league Cup this year proves that, but it will be nice to meet in the final as the top two local sides in the pyramid for the first time, in the last 3 years we have both met in the earlier stages of the competition, with Carlton triumphant in 2014 after knocking out Basford and Basford triumphant in both 2015 and 2016 after knocking out Carlton"

"There is much football to be played before then however and I am now focused on this weekend, competing in the Pool Marathon all day Friday and welcoming St John the Baptist school here on Saturday when we play Newcastle Town"

There will be dress rehearsal for the 2nd May Cup Final on Easter Monday 17th April when Basford visit Stoke Lane for a game that could yet have massive implications for both teams, given their respective league positions, Carlton of course will be hoping to be safe by then, with league points remaining an absolute priority for Wayne Scott.

In the meantime we look forward to a pool Marathon and Newcastle Town, final word to the Chairman!

"We will appreciate any support everyone involved with the club can give us during the pool Marathon and we look forward to welcoming acoustic singer Craig in the evening, anyone who wants to come and chuck a donation into the bucket is more than welcome to come and have a game and take any of us on as we aim to raise £1,000 for the club, just to give supporters an insight into what we are up against in terms of paying bills etc, the invoices this week were Water Rates £1,100 and Electric for the month also over £1,000 and then the Bar manager Jamie has rung me this evening to report damage to the stadium from storm Doris, the smile soon gets wiped off your face running a football club, make no mistake about that, we continue!" Concluded the Chairman.
