FA Senior Cup triumph for Carlton Town


Carlton Town yesterday pulled off one of the greatest victories in their 113-year history by beating Basford Utd 4-1 and win the Nottinghamshire FA Senior Cup.

Carlton Town produced one of the greatest victories in the club’s 113 year history to beat Basford United 4-1 in the Nottinghamshire Senior Cup Final at Meadow Lane in front of a crowd of over 400.

Basford dominated the early stages of the game at Meadow Lane, in front of a crowd of over 400, but Carlton defended for their lives and Mellors Blair hit the post after a great counter offensive.

Hooton gave Carlton the lead after more good work from Mellors Blair, but Basford struck back with a Hutchinson penalty before Carlton hit the woodwork again this time through Hooton before a decisive moment in the game on the stroke of half time.

Danny Elliot put the Millers 2-1 up before going into the break.

The second half started pretty much like the first with Basford on top, but clear cut chances were few and far between and it was Carlton who extended their lead after Basford had a goal ruled out for offside and then hit the woodwork themselves.

Hooton went down in a clash with the Basford goalkeeper Saul Deeney and their were loud appeals for a penalty, but the referee waved play on and the excellent Mellors- Blair swooped on the loose ball and curled a superb finish into the top corner.

Basford continued to press with a good corner and free kick count in some decent positions but it was Aaron Hooton who was to have the final say with another one on one finish to put the game to bed.
