Dean Holden to make Valley debut in legends clash


Dean Holden is set to make his Valley debut on Saturday, May 20th when Charlton legends take on Portsmouth legends.

During his playing career, the gaffer was twice an unused substitute in SE7 with Chesterfield in September 2011 and Rochdale in February 2012.

Holden's only appearance against the Addicks came with Bolton Wanderers in an FA Cup tie in February 2000.

The legends clash is the final event in a season of celebrations arranged by the 30 Years Back at The Valley Anniversary Committee, commemorating the 30th anniversary of the Addicks' historic return to The Valley and the foundation of the club’s award-winning Community Trust. Click here to get your tickets.

In fitting fashion, the game harks back to the historic meeting between Charlton and Portsmouth on December 5th, 1992 – the Addicks’ first fixture back at The Valley following a seven-year exile.

John Humphrey, Bob Bolder, Peter Garland, Garry Nelson, Sasa Ilic, Chris Solly, Chris Perry, Dale Stephens, Danny Haynes, Scott Wagstaff, Danny Green and Paul Hayes have already confirmed their attendance, with more legends set to be announced next week.

Hospitality and car parking tickets are also available. Fans who have already purchased their tickets for the match and would like to upgrade to a hospitality package can do so by contacting the club's Ticket Office on 03330 14 44 44 during normal opening hours.
