Some jobs saved

A number of staff left the Addicks this week following confirmation that a series of roles have been made redundant. The club announced last month that as many as 25 club officials could leave the club's two sites in Charlton and New Eltham due to a number of cuts and cost-cutting measures.

However, a number of roles have also been saved during a month-long consultation period, with some staff no longer at risk of redundancy. Charlton chief executive Steve Waggott said: 'It's been a very difficult month behind the scenes, with a lot of unpleasant decisions having to be made.'

Unfortunately it is often those with not particularly well paid non-pitch roles who have given years of dedicated service to the club who are vulnerable in these circumstances.

Perhaps Waggott should have thought about his own role and what he has contributed!

How does anyone know what Waggott has or hasn't contributed?

Waggott has been over promoted above his abilities.
