The following story has appeared in the Currant Bun: 'Shrimpers chief executive Steve Kavanagh is taking Charlton to an industrial tribunal over his exit last summer. The hearing is likely to shed some light on internal matters at The Valley. Kavanagh resigned from the Charlton board in late July and quit as chief executive soon after.'
The story continues, 'Peter Varney, who also left the club last July, is believed to have settled his case but it is understood former development officer Rick Everitt is suing the club after he was sacked last September. Kavanagh and Charlton declined to comment. But Everitt, in a message posted after he left The Valley, said: "These matters will shine a powerful light into what is going on."'
Ramsgate resident Everitt recently re-launched The Voice of the Valley fanzine and it is understood that the first issue sold well and a second one may appear in April. After the recent resignation of Pope Benedict, speculation identified Everitt as a possible 'dark horse' candidate for the role of Supreme Pontfiff, but the Hand of God intervened.
Any tribunal hearings are likely to take place after the end of the season.
