if you're wondering how strong a team charlton will be sending over, wonder no more.

take a look at cafc.co.uk and check out their list of pre-season friendlies. away to enfield on sat 27th july....err, no. its away to SOUTHEND UNITED that day!!!
so, just like with the visit of west hams 'first team' a few years ago at southbury road, enfield are trying to rip off their fans by getting them to pay to see them play a side you can go and see for free at welling on a monday night!
is this really worth paying cheshunt for the use of their ground for?

Thank you for your comments.

You are quite right - according to cafc.co.uk the Charlton Athletic FIRST TEAM have indeed got Southend United away on 27th July.

However, our match was arranged back in March with Glynn Snodin (the reserve team manager) as the 'first team' were already FULLY BOOKED for pre-season.

Furthermore, the admission prices for this game (and all our home pre-season friendlies) has been set at £5.00 and £2.00 which is, I am sure you are aware, LESS than a 'normal home' league fixture.

You ask "is this really worth paying cheshunt for the use of their ground for?" Of course it is.

The purpose of Pre-season friendlies are for the manager to assertain the strengths (and weaknesses) of his squad and for the players to work on their fitness.

If the playing of a fixture necessitates a neutral venue then that is what MUST be done.
