IT’S ALL SYSTEMS GO AT STOKE LANE , THE NEW JOURNEY BEGINS HERE AND THE CLUB IS HOPING NEW VOLUNTEERS COME FORWARD.
The last few weeks have seen exciting announcements at Carlton Town with the appointments of Tommy Brookbanks, Mark Harvey, Paul Roxley and the return of Martin Ball.
Jack Steggles and Oliver Clark have signed new contracts and a whole host of events are coming up to support the financial infrastructure of the club.
The real work starts now however, with players old and new reporting back for pre season training this week and the first big fundraiser of the new financial year seeing two of Nottinghamshire County Cricket club’s finest players coming to the Bill Stokeld Stadium this coming Friday.
Samit Patel and Luke Fletcher are the club’s very special guests and there is only one table left for the event if anyone is interested in coming along ?
Mark Harvey will be at the event and can’t wait to get started after returning from holiday.
Despite all the positivity, Carlton are still short of volunteers ahead of the new season.
A few key people left the club at the end of last season and Carlton have vacancies for a matchday secretary who can also help with the Academy paperwork.
The popular Dean Wykes pictured with his friends supporting the recent race day has enjoyed his time at the club so much, he has agreed to continue during the summer, despite his placement finishing at the end of last season.
Dean wil combine the Press Officer job and Programme Editor position for pre season and the early weeks of the season before returning to Sheffield University towards the end of September, so Carlton are on the look out to fill that position with Dean happy to show somebody the ropes if they wish to start sooner.
The club are also in need of Match day Stewards for the new season.
There has been no magic money tree suddenly sprout at Stoke Lane and the club will once again be reliant on volunteers, sponsors and fund raising.
Tommy Brookbanks believes he and Mark and their team can not only get more out of the existing players, but with the injection of some new talent and the fact that he is determined that everyone involved with the club will support events that are solely for the benefit of the club, he and his team will make a real difference not just on the pitch, but off it as well and a few new volunteers would certainly be very much appreciated by this Community Non for profit club.
