Peacock looks forward to 'Down Memory Lane' event

Club legend Keith Peacock is looking forward to the upcoming ‘Down Memory Lane’ event at The Valley as the 25 years back at The Valley celebrations continue.

The latest event, which takes place in the Millennium Lounge at The Valley on Thursday, March 15th, sees four Addicks icons – Lennie Lawrence, Chris Powell, Steve Gritt and former Chairman, Roger Alwen – sit down with supporters to answer questions.

Each of them will reminisce about their greatest Charlton memories, while fans will have the opportunity to pose their questions.

And as well as those four heroes taking their place at the top table, a number of legends will also be taking their place in the audience alongside supporters.

“There will be a lot of other players coming along as well,” explained Peacock who has helped to organise the event as part of the 25-year committee.

“The likes of Bob Bolder, Garry Nelson, Simon Webster, John Bumstead, Kevin Lisbie and Jon Fortune, just to name a few, will all be there in the audience. They’ll probably want to ask their own questions to their old managers, like why they were left out of the side or why they didn’t get enough money in those times!”

“It should be a really interesting and fun night,” he continued.

“We’re keeping it to a maximum of 100 tickets so it’s an intimate evening where people can ask all kinds of questions, enjoy themselves and meet some of the legends.

“I’ve been very pleased with the celebrations this season. Every event has been beyond what we had imagined and this particular event will see us share the proceeds with Prostate Cancer UK, so we hope to make a few extra pounds for the fund.”

Tickets are priced at £15, which includes entry and a drink, and all proceeds will be split between Charlton Athletic Community Trust and Prostate Cancer UK. Tickets can be purchased online by clicking here.
