CARLTON BEMUSED AND OUT OF POCKET AGAIN AFTER REFEREES DECISION!


Promotion Confirmed

ANGER AND FRUSTRATION AT STOKE LANE!

Carlton Towns difficult financial situation became worse today after the match referee decided the Millers pitch was dangerous despite it passing an earlier 10.45am inspection.

Although some rain had fallen in between, supporters of both clubs were left gob smacked when the referee decided it was to dangerous to play on and vented their anger on social media.

The club had done the correct thing in getting a morning inspection and the rain fall proior to kick off had not been heavy, so they were not anticipating any issues. 

Former Groundsman Bob Sharp and former manager Tommy Brookbanks who was in the crowd could not understand the decision and former referee Mark Steggles was equally critical.

After several recent postponements , Millers ground staff had worked hard to ensure this game had every chance of going ahead but are now once again left to pay staff, match officials and the opposition travel expenses with not a penny of income coming in.

The same had happened weeks earlier against Spalding costing the club over £400 and Carlton have not played a home game since December 23rd.

The club is run by volunteers who will once again have to dig deep into their own pockets and raise money to cover the situation, the afternoon stayed dry and everyone at Carlton believed this game should have gone ahead, but it was not to be and as well as having a massive fixture backlog, Carlton will have to get their fund raising heads on to ensure they can meet their financial obligations between now and the end of the season.
