Charlton win first trophy of the season

Whether this is the legendary Crown Berger cup is open to question, but Charlton started their pre-season by beating Welling 2-0 at Park View Road.

Brendan Sarpong Wiredu put the Addicks one up after a glorious ball through from Naby Sarr. Abraham Odoh made it 2-0 with the finish from inside the area. He was signed on a loan from Tooting originally last season and then signed professional terms with Charlton in the summer.

After the break Lyle Taylor smacked one against the crossbar from inside the area. Jake Forster-Caskey had 35 minutes on the pitch in the second half. Ashley Maynard-Brewer made a decent diving save from a Welling free-kick.

According to Louis Mendez of the SLP, Lee Bowyer said he hoped to have one or two new signings next week. Leamington striker Colby Bishop will not be among them as he has signed for Accrington Stanley for an undisclosed fee. He will have to give up his job as a teacher at a local primary school.

Jonny Williams won't be one of the new signings according to Bowyer, his wages are an obstacle: Not close to signing a deal

The presence of Bowyer's Aston Martin at Welling has drawn social media comment from fans.
