Eastwood Town 2-2 Carlton Town

Venue: Coronation Park, Chewton Street, Eastwood.

Badgers: Coulson (5), Archbold (65)
Millers: Ruben Wiggins-Thomas (18), Troke (74)

Great see a few old faces back at CP...Paul MacFarland, John Adams and Kelvin Mushambi to name but three...

It made our afternoon when we managed to grab a chat with Julian Topliss, who is now on the slow road to recovery after a viscious, mindless attack left the Carlton Town player in a very serious and critical condition. Here's hoping we will soon be seeing Julian back on the pitch where he belongs.

Eastwood scored first on 5, a Josh Schofield corner met with a powerful header by an unmarked JACK COULSON 6 yards from goal.

Carlton levelled in the 18th minute, RUBEN WIGGINS-THOMAS glancing a header past Wayne Smith from a cracking Ben FLYNN cross.

Eastwood went back in front after 65 minutes, SHAUN ARCHBOLD curling a superb 22 yard free-kick past Jonathon Viscosi in the Carlton goal.

The Millers were level with 74 played, this time former Badger ALEX TROKE emulating Archbold, firing his free-kick over the wall and into the top corner, giving Smith no chance.
