CHAIRMAN INVITES FANS TO HIS 60TH CELEBRATIONS AS MILLERS EDGE PAST LINCOLN AT STOKE LANE .
Carlton Town’s first home friendly rightly started with a perfectly observed minutes silence for Jackie North.
Carlton came out on top by a single goal in an entertaining friendly with Lincoln United, an own goal and a Romella Nangle penalty giving the Millers a 2-0 second half lead, before a late thunderbolt header brought a goal back for Lincoln United to give them a late sniff of a share of the spoils.
There was a decent crowd in of around 100 people on a mixed night of sunshine and showers.
Season tickets were secured, kit support too and Chairman Mick Garton who is holding his 60th birthday celebrations at the ground this coming Sunday said all supporters of the club were welcome to come along from 2pm and enjoy the afternoon and early evening at the ground.
Comedy, magic, Dan on the decks and a bite to eat is on the agenda with no raffles or number cards in site.
Boatsy has a good response to his plea for help Thursday night and this website understands that on top of the superb usual suspects, Mark Steggles, Dave Perrin, club legend Ian White and others have pledged to help Boatsy get the stand and Beer Garden finished for Saturday, so VIP guest Talksport presenter Jonny Owen can officially open them both up from 2.30pm.
We will continue the build up to Saturdays prestigious friendly in the coming days as the excitement builds and with the Chairman’s invite Sunday as well, it promises to be a busy weekend at Stoke Lane..
