Jason Pearce retires from playing
Former club captain Jason Pearce has taken a coaching role with the Addicks’ academy and will work with the U18’s. Interview here: Pearce retires.
Pearce has decided to retire, after turning down a couple of playing opportunities elsewhere, including some local club offers, to join the academy coaching staff at Charlton and will work with Hamza Serrar and the exciting group of U18’s.
Pearce is a leader of men and a real asset to the football club. What he didn’t have in talent he made up for in commitment and professionalism. 600 appearances over 15 seasons and captain everywhere he played. So much to give.
Good luck Jason.
