In the build-up to next Sunday’s fixture against Crystal Palace, players from Charlton Athletic Women’s team have been visiting schools in the South-East as part of the Charlton Athletic School’s partnership.rn

Captain Grace Coombs was joined by Ellie Dorey and Chloe Brunton-Wilde on Thursday morning as they led a special assembly at Morden Mount Primary School.  As well as fun activities where a signed football was handed out, the players spoke to children about the advancement of women in sport and their individual routes into playing football, before taking a Q&A.  

 

General Manager Steve Adamson said ‘Morden Mount was the first of many schools that we will be visiting in the upcoming weeks as it’s important that young people have role models and idols who are females. 

 

“We want to inspire the next generation of girls to start playing football and the room lit up when the players walked in for the special assembly”

 

All pupils will receive a free ticket to attend next Sunday’s fixture against Crystal Palace Ladies. The Addicks take on The Eagles at The Oakwood, in Crayford and remain unbeaten at home this season. The match is building up to become a big fixture with activates for families taking place pre-match including a mini-game featuring the Charlton Upbeats.
