Crown Berger Cup retained

Charlton retained the Crown Berger Cup with an emphatic 3-0 victory over Welling at Park View Road yesterday afternoon. The goals came from Morrison who nodded in a free kick and there was a 25-yard wonder strike from Danny Green, matched by a very modest celebration. The third goal came from 'A Trialist'.

This turns out to be 24-year old Sam Williams who was released by Yeovil. He comes from Plumstead (always a plus in my view) and was in our Academy before he went to Villa at the same time as Kinsella. He scored regularly for the reserves there. His Wikipedia entry is here: Williams

The Addickted present thought that it was an encouraging display, especially in the second half when something like the first choice team appeared to be playing.

Speaking after the game equine magnate John Window commented, 'Liked the German left back, big lad. Solly very good. Sullivan more confident than Elliot. Mambo certainly for the future. Their right back looked useful and I was told CP is looking at him. All in all, very good, BUT it was Welling.'

Ithought Anderson did well, but I'm not sure of his ability to get up and down the pitch. We're not short of left backs (Evina still to come), so I think he's a better option at centre back. A left-footed centre-back will be a useful addition. However, if Wagstaff doesn't up his game A LOT, he'll comfortably be replaced by Green. Wagstaff was easily the worst player on the pitch. I was a little concerned that Hayes and Benson are too much alike. All in all, a pretty good showing by the new players. Hollands as the holding midfielder and Stephens farther up looks the way to go.
