The Addicks head into the opening fixture off the back of an impressive pre-season campaign, with a 1-0 win over the reigning Scottish Premier League champions Rangers, a 2-0 victory against Ipswich Town and an 8-0 thrashing over Billericay Town. The Addicks rounded off pre-season with a marginal 2-1 loss to West Ham, with Yui Hasagawa’s brace cancelling out Heidi Logan’s early opener.

The hosts, Southampton,  kicked off their pre-season with a 1-1 draw with Scottish side Celtic. A friendly between the Saints and Charlton was scheduled to take place on July 24th but was called off. A 0-0 draw with Lewes followed and they faced a 1-0 defeat to Leicester City in their final pre-season friendly on Sunday.


Southampton finished top of the National League Southern Division in 2021/22 losing one game all season, with Marieanne Spacey's side achieving promotion via the Championship playoff, winning 1-0 against the Northern Division winners Wolverhampton Wanderers.
