Bowyer on Solly: "There aren’t many one-club men around, you can probably only name a handful"

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer will join the likes of Chris Powell, Damian Matthew and Steve Avory at Chris Solly’s testimonial dinner next month.

Solly made his first team debut in 2009 and has since gone on to play 292 games for the club in all competitions.

Speaking of the club captain, Bowyer said: “It’s not often you see that in football anymore. There aren’t many one-club men around, you can probably only name a handful. I know Mark Noble at West Ham but you can’t really think of many more.

“To have done so well at Charlton, over such a long period of time, shows what Chris is all about. He’s a true professional who deserves his testimonial.” 

Supporters can celebrate the career of Charlton legend Chris Solly by joining him and a number of special guests at his testimonial dinner on Sunday, March 17th.

On what is set to be a celebratory evening at The Valley, Solly will be joined by other Addicks greats as well as a number of current first-team stars.

Those in attendance will be treated to a three-course meal in SE7 and will have ample opportunities to speak with the man himself and all of his guests and teammates.

Tickets for Solly’s testimonial dinner are priced at £60 and can be purchased online by clicking here.

All the proceeds from the event will be added to Solly’s testimonial fund, which will then result in a charitable donation to Prostate Cancer UK, as well as other charities of his choosing, come the end of his testimonial year.
