GARTON TALKS TO CARLTON TOWN TV AND TODAY REVEALS THAT BROOKBANKS WILL BE GUEST AT DJ AFTERNOON!
The exclusive interview with Carlton Town Chairman Mick Garton has now gone live on Carlton Town Tv and Garton revealed it was Dave Hodgson that told him Tommy had left Basford after spotting it in on social media.
Garton was not surprised after realising that their former longest serving manager was missing the dugout.
Garton admitted he had moved quickly to secure Brookbanks after realising a number of other jobs were up for grabs and with Mark Harvey also in the frame for other positions and it is clear that this would not have happened if Garton and his colleagues had hesitated.
Garton also told us today that Brookbanks will be attending the clubs fund raising event at The Dragon on Sunday 19th May and is looking forward to engaging with supporters and staff alike.
One important other person joining us all at The Dragon is Supporter Dan Thorpe, Dan was a former season ticket holder and as been to a handful of games this season, but admitted to being “chuffed to bits” at the appointments of Brookbanks and Harvey and would now be likely to renew his ticket.
In the short term, he has offered to help with The Dragon event, spinning some tunes first at 1pm and bringing down a few friends to support this crucial fund raiser.
Garton is hoping for donations and for people to support the big draw at 4.45pm which has some cracking prizes secured by the Chairman.
The biggest boost for this event is the announcement of the appearance of Brookbanks who is keen to engage with supporters Old and new and also help make the event a success as he is also aware that money raised will be spent on repairing the pitch, something crucial to his and Harvey’s brand of football.
Admission to the event is free and Garton’s interview on Carlton Town Tv is now up alongside those of Brookbanks and Harvey and can be accessed by going to the menu tab on the home page.
