Ten Years Ago: Bumper crowd see win
My notes state, 'First half rather rugged, great David Whyte goal in second. Stuart played very well, as did Whyte and Rufus. Salmon made some good saves. Robson was unimpressive.' Incidentally, I believe that Jamie Stuart fans may be able to see him in action for Grays Athletic at Welling tomorrow.
The programme revealed that goalkeeper Andy Petterson had asked to go on the transfer list because of a lack of first team opportunities. Rather more important was an interview with Richard Murray who had taken over the leadership role at the club after Roger Alwen had stepped down. Murray stated, 'The next two years are absolutely vital to the future of Charlton Athletic. We must ensure that we are in one of the top two divisions'.
It is doubtful if Charlton would be a Premiership club today if it had not been for Richard Murray's dedication and leadership.
