North American Addicks
There has been various collections of North American Addicks’ supporters’ groups over the years, some official some not, but recently supported by CAST, a new group has been formed by Portland, Oregon based fan Clare Rathbone.
Clare is a third generation Addick, her son the 4th, and she often wondered, like all of us ‘displaced’ fans do, if there are any others out there. There is a no better feeling than to make contact or bump into fellow fans when living or working overseas. A lifetime of bad decision making is always better shared I have found 😆
There are a handful of us in Bermuda, and this new North American fans’ group has been set up to include those in the USA, Canada, Central America and the Caribbean. Bermuda doesn’t really fall officially into any of those, but hey, I’m in.
New CAFC director of marketing Wayne Mumford has also giving it his backing and with Thomas Sandgaard now the highest profile overseas Addick I suspect there will be a renewed effort to establish international supporter groups to create networks and communities.
This Blog has a lot of North American traffic and I’ve got to know many US based Addicks over the years, so I encourage all to sign up to the North American Charlton Athletic Supporters’ Club group on Facebook.
There are currently 42 members of the Facebook group.
