Purchase a signed copy of David Stocks' book

Former Charlton player David Stocks will be signing copies of his autobiography In the Shadows in the Meantime Fans' Bar on Saturday.

The book costs £12.99 and all profits from sales will be donated to Alzheimer’s UK. Those who wish to purchase a copy or donate are advised to bring cash.

David played football in an era few fans today would recognise: one where World War Two was still a recent memory, where players didn’t necessarily have to be professional and where fry-ups were a perfectly acceptable pre-match meal!

Get your matchday programme

Chuks Aneke stars on the cover of Saturday's Valley Review. In his exclusive interview, the striker discusses his return to fitness, his hunger to score goals and the Addicks' array of attacking options.

Elsewhere, former Addick Peter Shirtliff features in Cult Heroes and Luton Town loanee Louie Watson, who starred in Tuesday's victory against Exeter City, reveals all in The Last Word.

All that and more can be found in Saturday's matchday programme, available for just £3.50 from in and around the ground (cash only). Those paying by card can purchase the programme from the club shop.

Visit the Family Activity Zone

All young Addicks are invited to join us for a kick about in the Family Activity Zone (FAZ) ahead of Saturday's game.

Our indoor FAZ - located in Valley Central - will be open from 12.15pm until 2.15pm, while our outdoor FAZ - located in the West Stand car park - will be open from 12.15pm until 2.15pm. 

Join the fun inside Valley Central’s FAZ and enjoy games of table tennis, table football, pool or represent Charlton on FIFA! Younger Addicks can show off their colouring skills or draft a letter to their favourite Charlton men’s or women’s player in our letters to players box! 

Outdoors, weather-permitting, you can jump into our popular two-v-two panna cage and take a shot at our inflatable target shooter and target donut games. What's more, you can also put your football skills to the test against fellow young fans with high scorers winning a special prize!

Enjoy 30% off Frankie and Benny’s on a matchday!

Thanks to a brand new partnership with the club, supporters can now access 30% off their food bill on men's and women's home matchdays at Frankie and Benny’s Bugsby’s Way branch!

Grab a picture with Floyd and Harvey

Charlton’s mascot duo can be located in and around the vicinity of the ground ahead of kick-off.

Be sure to snap a picture with the pair and share your images on social media using #cafc for a chance to feature on the big screen during the game.

Get your 2023/24 gear from the club shop

All three of the club's brand-new 2023/24 kits can be purchased in-store and online, as well as training and travel wear.
