Carlton Town can officially announce that they have parted company with manger Wayne Scott following the conclusion of the 2018/2019 season.
Carlton ended in a relegation position but have stayed up courtesy of Gresley ending below them and Afc Mansfield failing ground grading.
In talks between the clubs executive committee and then manager Wayne Scott and Chairman Mick Garton, it was agreed that it was time for a change at the helm at the Bill Stokeld Stadium.
Both the club and manager felt that things had run there course and the club will now move for their number one target to replace Scott at the helm.
If the club cannot secure their preferred option, they will then consider other options and this website will keep Supporters right up to date.
Chairman Mick Garton told us “I would like to place on record our huge thanks to Wayne for the last 4 years”
“In his first season, we achieved a 33 per cent win rate which was an improvement on Les Mcjannet’s final season and in the second season we achieved one of the greatest nights in our history beating Basford United 4-1 in the Senior Cup Final at Meadow Lane”
“Last season was blighted by the fixture backlog and this season started promisingly and at the half way stage, despite our poor home form, we had excellent results away from home”
“In the second half of the season however, it’s fair to say the wheels have come off, but despite our problems in the league, Wayne still managed to lead us to another cup final and I thought we gave a good account of ourselves at Mansfield Town despite defeat to Basford”
“I have listened to Supporters in recent days and despite the view of the need to change things at the club, there was still a lot of warmth for Wayne and in particular for all the work he has put into the club and the commitment he has shown in his 4 years at the helm”
For his part Scott told us “Thankyou for the opportunity of managing this football club.
I would like to place on record my respect to the figure heads,(both past and present) staff and players throughout this time, I have been fortunate with the relentless dedication and support given by all”
“This support, together with the loyal faithful fans headed up by Alan Murphy has enabled the club to maintain it’s step 4 status throughout my tenure despite the difficult environment and continued strength and depth of the Northern Premier League”
“With the intergration of the youth section and establishment of the Academy, the fundamental’s are now in place for others to take the club forward”
“The experiences I have gained will stay with me and will be invaluable in future roles” concluded Scott.
This website also understands the clubs planned presentation night will not be going ahead on Friday 10th May as planned although trophy’s will still be presented at some point and a further announcement re this will follow in due course.
Garton and President Roger Smith and co are now focused on finding the best way forward for the club and initially focusing on their number one target to replace Wayne, but also know there are other clubs presently who have parted company with their managers and what the future holds nobody knows, but what is clear is that the Senior figures at the club wish Wayne and his highly respected number two Kelvin all the very best as they will surely move on to pastures new and hopefully have success in the future.
