CARLTON WIN IN THE CHRISTMAS SNOW


Promotion Confirmed

DEBUT FOR NOTTS TV AT STOKE LANE AS ELLIOT AND HOOTON CONTINUE SENIOR CUP FORM !

Danny Elliot will always be a legend at Stoke Lane, partly for his all action displays in Carltons midfield, but in many peoples minds because of a certain Cruyff turn and finish in a recent cup final at Meadow Lane.

Danny had not scored since that magical night, but it was time for Carlton to begin the defence of their trophy and somehow this competition seems to bring the best out of Elliot and a man called Hooton.

Elliot finished well to give Carlton an early lead but in fairness to Rainworth, they were the better team for the latter part of the first half and the start of the second.

Only the crossbar and the post saved Carlton from going 2-1 down but once that man Hooton had added a second after excellent work by the impressive Callum Mitchell (pictured) who was the Chairmans vote for man of the match took control of the game and could easily have added further goals with the crossbar and goal line clearances denying The Millers in the last quarter of the game which Carlton dominated.

Credit must be given to both sides and the 3 match officials for their performances in appalling weather conditions with rain, sleet , snow and a swirling and freezing wind all coming into play in front of an attendance of just 63 at Stoke Lane.

Another positive note was the appearance of Notts Tv who made their debut at Stoke Lane after Wayne Scott had appeared recently on Tv for the draw.

It was a good night for Carlton and Manager Wayne Scott will be hoping they can take this form into the league over the festive season.

Carlton are at home again on Saturday 23rd December v Stamford and the big Christmas draw will take place at 5.30pm in the Clubhouse Sportsbar accompanied by some good 80s music we are hearing.

If the game is called off due to bad weather, the draw will still take place on that Saturday but at the earlier time of 4pm.
