Promotion Confirmed


Sebastian Malkowski who we are told has played against Lionel Messi and represented his country put in an outstanding display of goalkeeping to prevent Carlton Town from ending their recent winless run at Stoke Lane this evening in a thrilling game against Frickley.

A late donation from the first team players presented to the fund by Danny Gordon had taken the amount raised for Brahima Ceesays family to £1,341.15 and a cheque was presented to Brahimas father on the pitch by Brahimas coach John Kilcullen prior to kick off.

A special mounted  photograph of the family from the memorial game specially prepared by Lou Lardi was also presented to the family by Millers Vice Chairman Paul King.

A Minutes silence was then held for club stalwart and legend Paul Shelton which clearly brought memories back for Brahimas family and there were some pretty emotional scenes ahead of the game.

Brahimas family were guests of honour and spent the evening in the corporate suite after the emotional pre match presentation. 

The game itself given everything else going on around it paled into insignificance to a certain extent, but the reality was the Stoke Lane faithful enjoyed a thriller, with Carlton playing some cracking football against 4th placed Frickley.. 

A gate of 138 ensured a lively atmosphere at Stoke Lane with the gate boosted by individuals wanting to pay their respects to Shelts, goals for Jordan Wilson and a Will Gnahore penalty after he had been upended by Malkowski gave Carlton a deserved 2-0 lead, it really could have been more!

Carlton had squandered numerous chances and when they did hit the target, Malkowski was outstanding and after Buxton and Ibie had pulled Frickley level , it was left to Jack Steggles with a good late save to ensure the Millers at least picked up a point from the game.

The match night programme provided an appropriate tribute to Brahima but much of it was in tribute to Paul Shelton, he was a good man indeed and everyone at the club willl miss him.
