New role for Peter Varney

Former Charlton chief executive Peter Varney has been appointed as chief executive of a Kuwaiti company seeking to make investments in European football: Varney . KEH were founded in 2008 and up to now have focused on real estate, tourism and health care.

I would be cautious about reading anything into this about possible investments in Charlton. His remit covers Europe as a whole.

KEH have extensive property investments interests in Sussex, including a major property development at Newhaven. Protracted talks to take over Blue Square South outfit Eastbourne Borough collapsed recently. The plan had been to invest heavily in the club to take them to the Football League. It is understood that a key member of KEH studied English in the town: Eastbourne

It is not understood that any Kuwaitis have applied for membership of the still active West Sussex branch of Charlton Athletic Supporters Club.

Spanish Tony will have to be very keen to get rid if he sells to PV's new crowd. PV must have a very good idea of precisely how much CAFC could really be worth and ST's gonna wanna get the best price possible. I imagine their expectations will be totally different.

Now looking at completing a deal for Ebbsfleet which sounds very positive for us as a club as long as nothing goes wrong.
