PREVIEW: CARLTON TOWN (A)

23 July 2014

Quite a strong Iron side will visit Carlton Town on Wednesday.

They are the team the Iron’s very own Terry Hawkridge started his career at, and he will be in line to play after returning from a knee problem.

The teams will be kicking off at 7.00pm down at the Bill Stokeld Stadium.

Carlton play in the Northern Premier League Division One South, which is the eighth level of English football. They finished tenth last season, eighteen points off the playoffs and twenty-five points off relegation.

The Bill Stokeld has a capacity of 1,500, making it the fourth smallest ground in the league. It has two stands, one behind the goal and the other on the far side of the pitch.

Lee Torr was voted the supporters’ player of the season last campaign. It was the defender’s debut season for the club after joining from Clifton All Whites. Torr was praised for his work ethic and committed performances.

Ex Notts County youngster Alex Troke won the players’ player award last year, in again what was his first season for Carlton Town. He plays primarily as a midfielder but is very versatile across the pitch. He is one of a few young prospects Carlton Town have in their ranks.

It is pay on the gate for fans, with admission costing £8 for adults, £6 concessions and £3 for kids.
