VALLEY REVIEW | Dillon Phillips leads Academy Day special programme

Academy graduate Dillon Phillips stars in Saturday’s programme as the club celebrates Academy Day for the visit of Blackpool.

The goalkeeper has been with the club since the age of eight and he sat down for a feature interview in which he discusses his long road through the academy, his memories of being part of an extremely successful U18 team and why this season’s experiences have made him a better goalkeeper.

Elsewhere, Lyle Taylor speaks about his eagerly-awaited return to action following suspension, while Lee Bowyer pens his latest manager’s notes.

There is more academy content with a special feature that takes a close look at the work done by Valley Gold and there is a full roundup of all the latest action from the club’s youth teams, as we look back at a varying week for the U23s.

As usual, the history pages turn the back the years with a look at four memorable encounters against the Seasiders, while the Charlton Museum report on an updated version of Colin Cameron’s Valiant 500 book and the strange tale of a mysterious former player.

The latest ‘My Addicks XI’ continues with the academy theme as Jonathan Fortune picks his best starting XI based on the players he played with during his career at The Valley, while Lee Nichol is the latest Women’s Team player to answer questions in ‘100-to-One’.

All this and more can be found in Valley Review, which will be available to purchase from in and around the ground, as well as in the Valley Superstore for £3.
