Amos leaves, MacGillivray in
Ben Amos has signed for Wigan Athletic, who are showing to be one of next season’s biggest L1 spenders.
Amos played 92 games for the Addicks covering two full seasons in 17/18 and 20/21 and although in apparent new contract discussions with Charlton, he has followed Chuks Aneke out of the door and moved elsewhere.
I’m not particularly bothered about Amos as I still aspire to a complete new look team, which looks a bit of a pipe dream I know based on current activity.
Amos did make many crucial saves last season, but for me he was very much part of our defensive problems and not the solution.
It does look as if Charlton will act quickly to replace him with 28-year old Portsmouth player of the year Craig MacGillivray.
UPDATE 07.15: Craig MacGillivray signs a two-year deal.
