TOURNAMENT PUSHED BACK TO JULY AS MILLERS ANNOUNCE FINAL FRIENDLY!
Carlton Town have today announced their final friendly of the current season with Ollerton Town visiting Stoke Lane on Saturday 1st May.
Sadly the game will once again be behind closed doors with only club officials and volunteers allowed to attend.
For those at the ground on the day, the club will be asking for support for all the hard work Boatsy is doing for charity and the club and raffle tickets for the biggest draw the club has ever been involved with will be on sale. Tickets are priced at £5 a strip or £10 for 3 strips and the prize list is amazing, we will publish an updated list before the end of the month.
The club have also revealed that the highly anticipated local tournament sponsored by Nottingham City Couriers Direct is now likely to take place in July after the government indicated they were not prepared to lift restrictions any earlier to enable spectators to attend.
League President Dick Durant will write to clubs asking how many of the 16 committed still want to be involved and we will announce the results of that in due course.
In other news, this website can confirm that Brian Dennett’s memorial event will go ahead on the afternoon of Saturday 19th June and details will follow.
After the friendly on Saturday 1st May which will kick off at 1pm, the club will next be in action on Sunday 30th May for the big Charity day.
The club will then use money raised from the 150 club to ensure the pitch is in the very best condition for the 2021/2022 season.
If the Nottingham City Couriers Direct tournament is to go ahead, then Carlton Town will play their opening group games away from home.
Carlton will play an away friendly against Basford United in July and the big home friendly will be against Merthyr Town fc on Saturday 24th July and this website understands everyone at Carlton is really looking forward to this game.
The club have rolled over Season Tickets for next season and will have to do similar deals with their sponsors given the few number of games played at Stoke Lane last season.
To raise money, the club are hoping Supporters and Sponsors will get behind the Matchball Sponsorship packages and the sponsoring of individual players once Tommy and Mark announce their squad for the 2021/2022 season.
The club we understand are hoping to announce the involvement of a new sponsor coming on board in the coming days, watch this space !
