They have given us the following positive statement.

Howard Mitchell Group work as suppliers to the construction industry and have been operating for seven years, with the head office based in Gedling village.
Owner Mitch and his colleague Tom are keen football fans and have been supporting Carlton Town for the last few years, attending homes games on an increasing regular basis.
Having grown the business over the past year, they have been eager to reinvest in the local community and support projects close to their hearts, which is why they have been so keen to work with Carlton Town.
Following meetings with club representatives the decision was made to sponsor the club’s sports bar, in the process renaming the bar to the Howard Mitchell Sports Bar, to help improve the services and, hopefully, keep beer prices down for the regulars!
Mitch and Tom, as well as their friends and family, are delighted to be able to sponsor the bar and help the club continue to move forward and will be regular faces, once the world is back to normal, at our beloved Stoke Lane.
Everyone at Howard Mitchell hopes that this is just the start of a long and trophy-laden relationship with the club.
The club will give details of the official opening and the chance to meet the new sponsors in due course.
Carlton were in friendly action at Eastwood Community Club this afternoon and despite scoring 2 early goals through Josh Rae and Tyler Blake, had to settle for a 2-2 draw in an entertaining friendly with Kieran Knight and Dam Moore scoring for the home side which featured a number of former Miller players.
