Host of legends to attend Friday's anniversary game


Yann Kermorgant, Sasa Ilic and Radostin Kishishev will be among a host of legends at The Valley on Friday as the club celebrates 30 years since Charlton’s iconic return to the stadium when the Addicks host Cheltenham Town.

The trio, who are all jetting in from overseas, will be joined at the game by some of the stars that played for Charlton against Portsmouth on that historic day in December 1992 - including goalscorer Colin Walsh.

Former players who have played an important role at the club over the last 30 years will also be in attendance.

The class of 1992 - including Chairman Roger Alwen, managers Alan Curbishley and Steve Gritt, and players Walsh, Bob Bolder, Keith Peacock, Garry Nelson and Scott Minto - are set to lead the teams out ahead of kick-off.

Other legends - including 1998 play-off star Ilic, cult hero Kermorgant and former Premier League Addick Jon Fortune - will be part of the pre-match pitchside interviews, hosted by Minto and beginning from 6.45pm as the club celebrates some of the highs of the last three decades.

As part of the celebrations, season-ticket holders are able to bring a friend of family member for free and all adult match tickets are priced at just £19.92. U18s and students can purchase match tickets at £7, while U11s tickets cost £6. Click here to purchase your tickets.
