Yesterday I had a clear view of The Valley on my plane back from Madrid. The 'CAFC' letters stood out very clearly and I could even see a train leaving Charlton Station.
Today the Addicks face Welling at Park View Road in a bid to retain the Crown Berger Cup. This is the first of a series of practice matches and it should be remember that is just what they are: an opportunity to test and improve match fitness, integrate new players in the team and try out different formations. The real business is still a month away.
Addick's Third Division Diary has been retired, hopefully never to be used again Future posts will be here. There will be a number of exciting features to come, including a chance to win an evening with Nigel and Nigella at their Beckenham home.
