Cambridge United friendly to be contested behind closed doors at Sparrows Lane

Charlton’s pre-season friendly against Cambridge United on Tuesday, July 17th will now be contested behind closed doors at Sparrows Lane.

The fixture – which was originally organised for the Addicks’ U23s squad – will now see two Charlton XIs participate in four 30-minute matches.

Speaking before Saturday’s win at Welling United, Lee Bowyer said: “We’re building the players’ minutes up, so it will go 60 minutes for the starters and 30 minutes for the second group.

“The ones that have done 30 will then do 60 on the Wednesday [against Dulwich Hamlet] and the ones that have done 60 the day before will do 30.”

Supporters will be able to follow the action from Tuesday’s pre-season game against Cambridge on Twitter. The club’s official account, @CAFCofficial, will be posting regular updates and a match report will be available to read on shortly after full-time.

No fans will be able to gain admission to Tuesday's friendly.
