Home of the Millers


August 30, 2021


Carlton Town took a decent away following to Daventry and according to Supporters Club Chief Alan Murphy produced their best first half performance of the season, with the players to a man all playing their part throughout an entertaining afternoon.

Millers Chairman Mick Garton chose to stand with supporters behind the goal and close friend Greg Last was also able to attend a rare away game. None of them were left disappointed as the Millers powered forward in entertaining fashion.

Daventry played their part to, particularly threatening on the break and always a threat from set play, but it was Carlton who went in at the interval a goal to the good thanks to Tom Maddison back on penalty duty after Arron Opoku was brought down in the box after a fantastic run.

Natt Watson should have made it two on the stroke of half time but failed to properly connect with a header which had been brilliantly put on a plate for him by Apoku.

Watson was to make amends in the second half with a brilliant finish after another cracking Millers move and they also hit the woodwork.

Special mention for Dan Brown at the back and Niall Davie (pictured) who went off injured, he had caused all sorts of problems for Daventry running at them with purpose and the swop round of Brown to Centre Half and Lawrence Gorman to full back recently as seen both players excel in the early games this season. Those are the kind of important decisions Mark and Tommy have to make!

The Millers Players and Coaching staff as they always do, came over and applauded the excellent away support, among them was Club Legend Grant Brindley who got a hug from Tom Maddison after he had scored his penalty.

The Millers are 6th in the table which is one place off a play off position and although it is very early in the season, the management duo must be delighted with the way the season as started , given they have rotated regularly given a number of injuries, including five changes at Daventry, but six points over the bank holiday weekend with no goals conceded makes for a happy holiday weekend.

The next league action is at Stoke Lane on Tuesday 7th September when Sutton Coldfield are the visitors, before then the Millers entertain Stratford Town from step three in the FA Cup on Saturday 4th September, the Milers are hoping for a good turnout!
