Promotion Confirmed


Carlton deputy Commercial manager Gaz Bee coordinated fund raising after the excellent efforts of commercial manager Brian Dennett yesterday and announced to a packed Clubhouse that fund raising had just topped £1,100 as he compared an entertaining raffle draw.

That fund was further boosted by a further £120 with the auction of a cricket bat signed by the Notts ccc squad kindly donated by councillor Webster.

The fund raising bucket will be left on the bar for one more week before a presentation at Carltons next home game on Wednesday 4th October when Brahimas family will be the clubs special guests for the fixture v Frickley.

The raffle went on for some time given the amount of prizes donated by people involved with the club and Brahimas manager John Killcullen was delighted how the club came together and he sent a personal note of thanks to both Senior Chairman Mick Garton and Junior Chairman Paul Whitby.

"Thank you for the massive support and coming together during this difficult time. My team wear the Carlton Town colours with pride and will carry on to do so and today they felt the warmth and coming together in support of their team mate Brahima, so from me and my team thank you!"

Garton praised a number of people for their efforts in a speech in the bar and told us " The help from John, Paul and Kendra and Wayne the first team manager in putting this together as been fantastic and it was great to see so many first team players turn out today and the youngsters who had already played this morning to take on Johns side"

"The match officials were all volunteers from inside the club so a big thanks to Jordan ,Justin and Tim and in particular to Brian Dennett who has thrown his heart and soul into this and to everyone who donated prizes, that was some prize table today" 

"We look forward to welcoming Brahimas family back next week to receive the cheque, we can not bring him back but no family should have to go what they have been through and the money raised will hopefully contribute towards funerals costs and help ease the burden in some small way, above anything else, it shows people care and both myself and Paul Whitby were proud to be at the helm of the club today given the response from people and the warmth in the Stadium today" concluded Garton.

For the record, Wayne and Paul Whitbys team won the game 4-1 with a brace from Harry Gibbons and goals from Jack Oldham and Kyle Stovell , Mohammed Ibrahim got the consolation for John Killcullens side and there was even a guest appearance by bar manager Jamie Huckerby who got an assist and celebrated in style.

The result was unimportant, the coming together for Brahima was what it was all about and it proved to be a day the club can be proud of when they came together for one of their own, so sadly taken from us and his loving family at just 18 years old RIP BRAHIMA CEESAY!
