Charlie says goodbye to Ebbsfleet

Former Charlton striker Charlie MacDonald, who once scored against Newcastle at The Valley, reflects on his time at Gravesend and Northfleet (now re-branded as Ebbsfleet) in the Non-League Paper.

Now 26, he writes, 'I'll be moving to a League club this summer. I won't reveal which clubs are in for me, but there is interest at both League One and League Two level.' [Leyton Orient is one club that has been mentioned]

'I was a little disappointed to spend the amount of time that I did in Non-League football. It was frustrating I wasn't getting the interest before but better late than never.'

'I'm not sure the system we played [at Gravesend and Northfleet] was the best for me personally. I'm not at my most effective when running the channels and am better holding the ball up and linking play.'

I remember Charlie talking disconsolately about his future outside Craven Cottage after a game at Fulham as his time at Charlton came to an end. I am sure he can meet the standards of the lower levels of the Football League and I am pleased that at last things seem to be coming together for him.
