Promotion Confirmed

180 MILE ROUND TRIP FOR SAM BUT MILLERS DROP TO 17TH AFTER ANOTHER 1-0 DEFEAT!

Sam Hodgson pictured in Carltons Clubhouse this evening was back at Carlton Town after making the 180 mile round trip from near Manchester to support Wayne Scotts Millers and Estelle Garton made a rare appearance in support of The Millers at Stoke Lane today to but the appearance of neither brought Carlton any luck as they went down 1-0 for the 4th time this season and dropped to 17th in the table.

There were lots of positives for Carlton, particularly in the first half as they attacked Leek with purpose and new signing Kaylum Mitchell was particularly impressive, only being denied a wonder goal by a fantastic save by Ben Chapman in Leeks goal.

Steggles too made a fantastic save in The Millers goal, but Carlton were failing to capitalise on their excellent build up play and Millers supporter Dave Hodgson was concerned there would be a price to pay.

"I thought we played some cracking stuff in the first half and my son Josh should have been writing his half time report about a lead by 2 or 3 goals"

"The team is definitely moving in the right direction and the work rate and drive was a pleasure to watch, but you had this horrible feeling that we were not going to score and they might nick one and so it proved" concluded Hodgson.

It was cruel indeed with the winner from Jordan Johnson coming in the 92nd minute, good finish though it was coming just 2 minutes after Aaron Hooton had come within a whisker of winning it for Carlton. 

Apart from the positive debut of Mitchell, others positives were the excellent sales of Castle Rocks Stuart Broad Real Ale which went down a treat with supporters and the excellent donations coming in for Brahima Ceesays family ahead of tomorrows Memorial match, which we understand nearly all the first team have made themselves available for and they will team up with the under 17s to take on Carlton Town under 18s managed by Brahimas manager John Killcullen featuring the lads he played with before his tragic death.

Kick off is 2pm for what promises to be an emotional but rewarding afternoon and admission is free but donations can be made on the gate and there will be a raffle which will be drawn after the game in the Clubhouse Sportsbar.
