Promotion Confirmed


A combination of poor first half defending and a highly controversial late late flag contributed to another Fa Cup disappointment for Carlton Town as they went down 3-2 at Boston Town.

Carlton went out at the first time of asking for the 4th year in a row, but will point to a second half fight back which looked to have earnt them a replay at Stoke Lane 

Credit should be given to Boston who followed on from their penalty win at a Radford Fc in midweek, by taking their second Nottinghamshire scalp inside a week.

They went in at the interval 3-1 to the good leaving Carlton facing an uphill battle in the second half with Carlton just having an excellent finish from Jordan Wilson to show for their efforts.

Carlton responded but Hooton had a goal ruled out early in the second half for offside, before the striker did pull one back after combining with Gnahore.

Carlton continued to press for the equaliser and thought they had it the death, but after initially signaling a goal to Hooton from a tight angle, the referee changed his mind after a flag went up as the players made there way back to the centre circle.

Hooton was so incensed, he was booked for dissent and only a minute later received his marching orders for a second yellow card, Carlton supporters Chief Alan Murphy who always calls it as he sees it either way, clearly believed the match officials had got the decision wrong and his full match report is on the Supporters website.

It was a big call, a call that saw Carlton bow out of the Fa Cup without any prize money once again this year, but the players will have to put in behind them and pick themselves up for Romulus next Saturday, where hopefully they can carry on where they left off at home to Sheffield last week.
