Pre-season results ultimately don't mean that much given the nature of the opposition, but it is still heartening and good for morale to see results like the 3-0 away win at Portsmouth yesterday.
The development squad are also doing well, winning 3-1 at Thurrock. After a tight first 30 minutes, Thurrock took the lead. Jack Munns and Adebayo Azeez were unable to take advantage of chances to equalise before half time.
In the first five minutes of the second half, the Addicks scored twice. First, Oliver Muldoon scored a 20-yard thunderbolt and then Joe Pigott slotted home after a bad back pass. On the hour the Thurrock keeper saved well from Morgan Foxx. Harry Gerrard then scored a penalty after a handball.
