Promotion Confirmed


Carlton Town Chairman Mick Garton admitted to being frustrated at the constant battle to keep the club financially stable after the latest string of bills came in over the weekend.

"It is not getting easier, we are near the bottom of the attendance table and invoices I am having to deal with at the moment are off the radar in terms of what we have budgeted for"

"I must stress this is not on the playing side and Wayne sticks to his budget strictly and I have no issues on that side of things at all, but we have been hit with some other unexpected costs this season, we took a loan out for a new mower which we still have to make a final payment on and I have had two or three other nasty surprises in the last few weeks and more this weekend and I had a heated conversation with one particular individual representing an organisation grasping at getting money out of us this evening"

"It means another hard summer of fund raising by myself and all the volunteers, but we will get on with it because that is what we do, but you do feel you are up against at times" 

"On a more positive note, I have had a brief meeting with David Parsons who helped organise our Beer Festival last year and he has already committed to helping me with the planning for this years event of which I am extremely grateful"

"The plan is tie it in with the 96/10 Reunion event being organised by Tommy Brookbanks, so the event would start on Friday 23rd June at 5pm and once again be a Sausage and Beer Festival after last years success"

"We would show the 20/20 England Cricket International in the bar that evening also and Press officer Josh Hodgson as said he will go on his decks afterwards" 

"The Saturday from lunch time would obviously initially be a private party with the bars opening to the public at 5pm with Brookbanks and the former coaches and players attending happy to meet and chat with anyone coming in between 5pm and 7pm, that party will be heading in to town at around 7pm and the bar and BBQ will remain open during the evening.

"There is lots of work to do and I will meet David soon to try and formulate a plan, we are hoping to move things forward with the Race day in the coming days and I will work my socks off during the summer to try and attract new sponsors"

"We have sold over 50 tickets for the Ian Storey-Moore evening on Friday 17th June which is good but I still have work to do on that and we will continue to do our bit to support local charities as we have always done under my tenure" concluded the Millers Chairman.
