Promotion Confirmed


Carlton Towns first fund raising event of the summer proved another outstanding success with a whole hosts of special guests attending on a warm summers evening at Stoke Lane.

Nottingham Forest legend John Robertson who was the guest speaker at Christmas was in the house and came up and said a few words paying tribute to Ian Storey-Moore, Robbo got a great ovation!

Filmaker Jonny Owen made his first visit to Stoke Lane along with Bandy and Shintys Dave Marples and The Guardians Chief Football writer Daniel Taylor and BBC sports Andrew James, himself a Millers supporter.

Local Author Boatsy was another who took tickets for this event and was in fine form throughout and he kindly donated some historic Forest programs from 1967 which Ian duly signed and £155 was raised for the club.

Before Storey-Moore swung into action, the audience watched the conclusion of Nottinghamshires record run chase against Essex on the clubs big screens and a large cheer went up when Samit Patel hit the winning runs.

New Millers sponsors Lindleys took a table along with Trent Instruments and Castle Rock kindly sponsored the event once again and many Millers supporters brought tickets.

Ian Storey-Moore spoke brilliantly before later taking questions from the floor and also gave a fantastic interview to Millers Radio with press officer Josh Hodgson whose father Dave, also took a table and it was great to see now retired former long serving Notts County Secretary Tony Cuthbert in the house.

There were presentations to mark Paul Sheltons 40 years at the club and Lou Lardi was presented with his Clubmans award, both had missed Carltons presentation evening.

MSR Newsgroup sponsored the auction, picture raffle and superdraw raising just over £1,000 for the club with Steve Harold winning the squad signed framed England shirt and Simon Wilson the signed Henry Cooper shorts while Roger Gailbraith won Nottingham Forest Hospitality.

In the silent Auction, Aunit Sanden from the Dragon Pub in Long Row won the One Day International tickets while Katrina and Paul also on the Castle Rock table won Forest Hospitality for the first game of the new era at The City Ground.

Boatsy got out the shots, Ian Storey-Moore left the building vowing to come down and watch a game during the forthcoming season and Chairman Mick Garton and the clubs staff reflected on another successful night at Stoke Lane.

Next up is next Friday and Saturdays Beer and Sausage Fest and next Saturday afternoons reunion event with Tommy Brookbanks class of 96/10, the club looks forward to seeing friends of the club old and new next week with admission to the beer Festival free from 5pm both days!
