Promotion Confirmed



Carlton Town will face Kidsgrove Athletic this weekend in the seventh match of the Evo-Stik South league, a side who have yet to pick up a win this season.


Wayne Scotts team are looking to continue their 100% record at home after picking up three wins at Stoke Lane in the opening games of the campaign, a feat that last happened back in 2009/10, and the manager believes the opposition are beginning to worry about travelling to Stoke Lane.


“Its become a bit of a fortress and people are apprehensive when they travel, whether or not they will get any points.”


“People have commented on improvements and it just gives the boys that extra lift.”


Kidsgrove sit third from bottom in the league, and Carlton have only lost three times in the last 10 meetings with Ryan Austin’s side, yet Scott insists there will be no complacency from the squad in the build up to the game.


“After Boston we brought the boys in and spoke about how we go into games like this.”


“There will certainly be no complacency from the team.”

“The resources they have and the quality of the players, they are very good side. Theyve had a poor start but it will be one of our biggest tests this season.”


“If we can get a result, make it 4/4 and I think 13 points from 7 games, it will give us a great platform to look back and assess.”


Carlton have been tested in recent weeks, coming from behind to beat Bedworth and most recently being on the wrong end of a poor refereeing decision away to Newcastle Town, and following the Kidsgrove game, the Millers will be having a two week break due to the fixture list, a period that Scott says will be used to look back on the opening stages of the season.


“Tomorrow is important to get a positive result, and then we can take time to reflect on the opening games. We may even try to arrange a friendly just to keep the boys ticking over and keep momentum up.”


“Weve been working very hard, last week the boys came in on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday - not many sides do that. The togetherness is really good and we can only improve.”


Wayne Scott and Carlton Town are also delighted to announce 23-year-old Evan Garnett as manager of the NPL Football Academy. Garnett, a forward who has played for Worksop, Kidderminster and Burton, will be taking control of the Academy as they play in the NPL League and FA Youth Cup.


Speaking about the new addition, Wayne said: “Im really pleased. Hes a young player, he plays a league higher than Carlton, but hes young, so I’m hoping the Academy can relate with him.”
