You know in 20 years time 3,000 Addicks will be claiming they were at the Lamex last night as Charlton claimed their largest ever win. A record that has stood since 1953.
Stevenage made a load of changes and fielded a youthful team, but then again so did we as Taylor Maloney, George Lapslie and Toby Stevenson starred. 18-year old Stevenson was making his debut at left wing back, and became the first ever Addicks’ debutant to score a hat-trick. A night he will never forget as will the couple of hundred Addicks present.
I’ve been thinking about the Stevenage game a lot this week. Google their manager Graham Westley and you can read a lot about his past endeavours. Of a journeyman footballer, who at 28 years old cut his teeth in management at Kingstonian and how he left Farnborough Town in the lurch just days after a much publicised ‘home’ FA Cup game against Arsenal.
Farnborough conceded home advantage in that 4th Round to play at Highbury and Westley was not only manager but also owner. After the 5-1 defeat Westley took his assistant manager, goalkeeping coach, seven players and alleged £500,000 of profit made from the Arsenal game to Stevenage Borough. Search a bit harder on the net and you will come across a “Westley is a c***” website. He has always stirred a lot of passion, and he thrives on it.
