Club trigger Blackett-Taylor's extension clause


Manager Dean Holden has confirmed that the club have triggered the one-year extension clause in Corey Blackett-Taylor's contract.

The 25-year-old winger, who has scored six goals and registered three assists this season, is now under contract until the summer of 2024. 

It follows the news of Ashley Maynard-Brewer and Holden signing long-term contracts with the Addicks last week.

Holden said: "We had an option on Corey and it’s the right thing to do to extend his contract. He’s played a lot of football since I’ve been in the job and he’s a player that excites me with his pace. He’s had a decent goal return. We’re still looking for more from him and more assists.

"He’s the type of player that I like to work with. He’s front-footed in the way that he plays and he gets defenders into positions that they don’t really want to get into with his pace. He’s certainly got a lot of attributes to get the fans out of their seats and to create exciting moments in a game.

"Of course, it’s then about that end product and we’re working on that. If he can get that consistency into his game then he can go up another level, no problem. For me he’s a really, really good player and I love working with him. I’m really delighted that we’ve got him for another year at least."
