2008-2017: Starting Again

2008: First season in the second tier

2008/09 saw the Addicks competing in the second tier – the Premier League Southern Division - finishing fourth.

However, the Reserve team was re-established and met with immediate success as they earned a resounding win over Millwall in the Kent Cup final.

2009: The rebuild continues

Charlton continued their rebuilding process in 2009/10 with their young team beginning to mature and had a superb run-in at the end of the season losing only once in the league in 2010.

The Addicks' Reserves capped a great season by winning promotion to the FA Women's Premier League Reserves South Division 1.

2011: Southern Division champions

In 2010/11, Charlton moved to Thamesmead Town FC and their years of rebuilding were finally rewarded as they won the Southern Division with a team featuring many players who had come through their Centre of Excellence.

The elation of regaining their National Division status, however, was soured as the club lost its Centre of Excellence status in May 2011 as the FA re-structured.

2011: Back in the top flight

The Addicks enjoyed a good first season back in the top flight, finishing fifth

Charlton were supported along the way by PHSC PLC, who entered into a five-year sponsorship deal with both the women’s and all of the junior teams who played in the Elite Female Development Programme.

2013: Major rebuild

2012/13 saw the Addicks finish a disappointing seventh-place after Paul Mortimer elected to step down.

However, they went on to win the London Cup. The strength of the club's youth policy showed as they won the FA Women's Premier League Reserve South Division 1 title. Celebrations were cut short, though, with the massively disappointing news that the club's excellent Women’s Super League application had been unsuccessful.

So, for a third time, the club had to pick itself up from a major setback. The family ethos of the club shone through as the vast majority of the first-team squad elected to stay and, with the fantastic support of sponsors PHSC, aim to be the best club in winter football.

The club by now is a separate company, but is still affiliated with both Charlton Athletic Football Club and the Charlton Athletic Community Trust.

2014: Retained the London Capital Cup

Restructuring of the FA Women’s Premier League in 2013/14 saw the club playing in the Southern Division and, following several long-term injuries to key players, they finished fifth but retained the London Capital Cup.

2015: Historic cup treble

2014/15 saw the first team complete a memorable cup treble, winning the FA Women’s Premier League Cup for the first time since 2006, retaining the Capital Women’s Senior Cup and picking up the Ryman Cup for the first time.

The Addicks finished 3rd in the FA Women's Premier League whilst the Reserves re-gained the Reserve South Division 1 title.

2016: Club receives FA Regional Talent Club licence

2015/16 saw a close title race as the first team finished FA Women's Premier League runners-up.

The Addicks also retained the Capital Women’s Senior Cup for the third successive year, while the Reserves won the Capital Intermediate Cup for the first time. 

In April 2016, the club was awarded a FA Regional Talent Club Licence for its youth section.


2016-17 saw the first team finish a disappointing fourth-place in the FA Women’s Premier League Southern Division.

Charlton reached three cup finals, facing Tottenham Hotspur in all of them. The Addicks retained the Capital Women’s Senior Cup for the fourth successive season and were finalists in the FA Women's Premier League Cup and Ryman Cup.

Meanwhile, the Reserves finished as runners-up in the FA Women's Premier League Reserve Southern Division.
