2023/24 Season Timeline


Following the conclusion of a thrilling campaign in the Barclays Women's Championship, Charlton took a look back at some of the most notable moments from this season as they secured a second-place finish in the league.


The Addicks opened their 2023/24 account with a 1-1 draw against Sheffield United in front of over 900 Charlton fans at The Valley. Summer signing, Kayleigh Barton netted 14 minutes into her debut, capitalising on a mistake by the opposition to fire the Addicks ahead in SE7.


Having suffered a slow start to their league campaign, Hills’ side claimed their first win in gameweek four. The Addicks sealed a 1-0 victory against Birmingham City on the road through a penalty by Barton on the hour-mark.


In October, Charlton entered the Continental Cup with an away trip to West Ham. Despite leading at half-time, they were condemned to a 2-1 defeat at the Chigwell Construction Stadium.

In the Barclays Women’s Championship, the Addicks constructed a solid run of form, claiming victories over London City Lionesses, Blackburn Rovers and also a remarkable 3-2 win against South London rivals, Crystal Palace at The Valley.


November saw an impressive unbeaten month in all competitions, picking up three wins from a possible four, with a 1-1 draw against Sunderland being the barrier to a full house.

Tegan McGowan made an extraordinary return from her ACL injury, being substituted on in the 87th minute and firing the Addicks ahead just three minutes later.


Charlton rounded off the first half of the season at the top of the table having secured a 2-2 draw against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. Kiera Skeels netted the all-important equaliser in the dying embers to rescue a vital point. 

Elsewhere, the Adobe Women’s FA Cup campaign kicked off, where the Addicks recorded their highest goal total of the season, sealing a 6-0 win on the South Coast against AFC Bournemouth.


The start of the new year saw the 101 day unbeaten run come to an end as Charlton bowed out of the Continental Cup with a 2-1 defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion at The Oakwood.

However, despite the loss in the cup, they continued their superb form in the league with two wins over both Blackburn Rovers and Crystal Palace.


February offered another challenge for the team as they travelled to Brisbane Road to take on WSL side Tottenham Hotspur in the FA Cup Fifth Round. A valiant effort from the Addicks unfortunately ended in defeat as the top-flight side claimed a 1-0 win on the day, with former-Addick Kit Graham’s 76th minute strike separating the sides.


As the business end of the season kicked into action, Charlton suffered their first league defeat since September against Reading at The Oakwood. Charlie Wellings’ long-range strike saw the Addicks’ 12-match unbeaten run come to an end.

On a more positive note, later that month the club welcomed a record-breaking crowd to The Valley as Charlton locked horns with London City Lionesses, with over 1,300 fans in attendance.


In the final month of the season, Karen Hills was awarded the LMA Manager of the Month award as the 2023/24 campaign rounded off with three wins from three in April.

Sian Rogers and Jessica Gray took their combined clean sheet total to 12 across the season as Charlton cemented their second-place spot in the Barclays Women’s Championship with wins over Watford, Sunderland and Southampton.
