The club has announced twenty-eight depatures on the official website, many of them familiar figures at The Valley and Sparrows Lane. For example, I have had a lot of contact with Terrie Kennor over the years and always found her very helpful.
Peter Varney notes on the website that a lot of the focus has been on the axeing of the women's team. However, that has resonated way outside Charlton. I was approached by someone at Southam United's ground last night who said that it was against everything Charlton stood for.
Having said that, a Southampton supporter told me the other day that the women's team was the first thing to go when they went down. Clearly, the club has had to make some drastic economies which reflect profligate spending last season on players who weren't worth what was spent on them.
Hopefully, better times now lie ahead.
