Welcome Conor McGrandles
A surprise late signing tonight when not long after the club unveiled it’s new website, the first news article which looked like a test page, announced a new signing.
That is 26-year old midfield playmaker Conor McGrandles. Falkirk born McGrandles turned down a new contract with Lincoln City and in a ‘Dale Stephens move’ signed a three-year contract with Charlton after declaring he was homesick.
Another player with leadership experience, he often captained Lincoln and the majority of his over 200 plus league games have been at L1 level. He was previously at MK Dons, and prior to that at Norwich who brought him down from Scotland where he made his Falkirk debut at the age of 17.
Described as a deep-lying playmaker, less of a defensive midfielder, more one that likes to dictate play. By all accounts the Scot has a good range of passing and is a worker bee. Possibly he and Dobson could be good foils for each other.
McGrandles also joins a growing Scottish contingent in the Addicks squad. Welcome to the clan Conor.
As for the new Official Site, it looks simple and eye-catching but it was looking better for me in the mobile version tonight. Hopefully we lose the Charlton AFC address.
