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.

Maynard-Brewer loaned to Gillingham

That might explain why Ashley Maynard-Brewer wasn’t in Spain, although I think he was spotted in Australia, The Highlands and Tesco in Dartford.

Another transfer move that swung under the radar today with AMB moving to Gillingham for the season, although the Addicks do have a recall option.

Joe Wollacott signing raises question over MacGillivray

Interesting new signing today. Once again Thomas and the black box analytics team have raided Swindon Town and signed the 25-year old Ghana international goalkeeper Joe Wollacott on a three-year deal.

Wollacott is still young for a goalkeeper but prior to one season at Swindon had spent his whole career in non-league after coming through the Bristol City academy.

Welcome Mandela Egbo

Seems like a confident young lad. Attacking right back Mandela Egbo became the club’s second summer signing today penning a two-year contract with an option of a third.

The 24-year old was at Swindon at the end of last season under Ben Garner, signed just to keep fit initially, but Egbo had a star run in the team as Swindon made it into the L2 play-off’s.

Welcome Eoghan O’Connell

There was rumours of a couple of not so familiar faces at the first day of training at Sparrows Lane today. Eoghan O’Connell wasn’t one of them, but the club announced the Rochdale captain as a new signing this evening.

The 26-year old Cork-born ball playing centre-half is the Addicks first summer signing hopefully signalling some further activity this week.

Kirk to stay or go?

On loan Josh Davison still has some unfinished business at Swindon Town as they kick off the play-off’s at home to Port Vale on Sunday. Davison has scored 9 goals since his move on loan in January.

One out on loan player that has returned however is Charlie Kirk. I didn’t see many grievances of Sandgaard’s signing of Kirk from Crewe in the summer, but he never settled in the smoke particularly following the death of his father.

Burstow leaving

You could not make this up.

Mason Burstow is not in tonight’s squad as he and Thomas Sandgaard explore a potential sale to an unnamed Premier League club.

One more in. Scott Fraser?

Charlton have been tracking Scott Fraser for a while, in fact even when he was at MK Dons rumours linked us to him.

Now at Ipswich who signed him a part of their massive summer recruitment drive for a ‘sizeable six-figure fee.’ Charlton made their first bid last week, but have had a second improved one accepted by Ipswich.

River Nile

The Addicks have signed Tottenham’s Nile John on loan until the season-end. The 18-year old is an attacking midfielder and was recommended to us by Sir Chris Powell. If only Powelly could have a word with that Harry chap as well!

New loan signing

Not a young Spurs loanee, but another from the Chelsea factory line.

The Amsterdam born speedy left wing back Juan Castillo has signed on loan until the end of the season. Castillo did play a few games on loan at Birmingham earlier in the season. His season-long loan was cut short. Last season he played on loan in the Eredivisie for ADO Den Haag.

Kirk on his way

Sounding more and more like Charlie Kirk’s short stay at The Valley will come to an end in this window.

There are talks of a permanent move back to the north-west with Blackpool, who obviously see things in him that we haven’t.
