Carlton Town FC- and the best of us

The game thrives so often on unpleasantness, eternal conflicts of tribal natures on social and anti-social media and the game having too much importance. But here on Saturday at Carlton the exact opposite.

All those I spoke to had a cheary word and a more philosophical and gentle approach. And even the goalkeeper of Stockton said ‘ I wish you well’ to the Carlton fans and he meant it. I left smiling.

Non league brings the best out. Stockton fans I spoke to were warm and generous and Carlton lost with a style, this was the best of us.
