Basford to host Charlton Athletic on Thursday

5 months ago By Josh Wing

On Thursday we welcome Charlton Athletic to Greenwich Avenue for a pre-season game, kick off 7.30.

Charlton have been running their pre-season at Welbeck College and have been looking for the chance to play against the best non-league sides and now Basford have the chance to show their worth.

Martin Carruthers explained how this level of opposition came about:
"Due to my relationship with the League Managers Association and also knowing U23 manager Jason Euell... I was contacted about the possibility of a friendly."

Carruthers is aware of Charlton's strengths saying:
"They are a top side and will have numerous players who have featured in their first team in 2017-18 and also many who will feature this season as well.

"They will be full of quality and be a great experience for not only some of our first team players, but also be an opportunity for some of our younger players to show what they have got against a top football league side."

This game promises to be a great pre-season challenge and will allow fans to get a taste of first-team action and young stars to shine.

Admission: Adults £5, Over 60s / Students £3, Under 16 £1, Families £10.
