The whip round that Marian Mihail done to raise a few quid must have gone better than expected as their was enough over to send Lee Bowyer and his small squad – perhaps they are all sharing a room – to The Belfry for some much needed team bonding, and one would assume, golf.
Whilst they are in the Midlands the Addicks will also play Birmingham City in a pre-season friendly on Saturday at Wast Hills, the Blues training ground.
Along for the ride is Tom Lockyer, who is free to leave but is currently training with The Addicks. The club have had interest in both Dillon Phillips and Alfie Doughty, but the club have currently resisted.
The Addicks also play Crystal Palace at Selhurst in a friendly on Saturday 29th. Bowyer said that the League Cup 1st Round tie at Swindon will also be used as a pre-season preparation match.
I wonder if we play Welling United this summer? I mean the reason to play then is to raise money for our local neighbours, which a behind closed doors won’t.
