Chris Solly reaches the 300 appearances mark

Chris Solly celebrated making his 300th appearance in the red of Charlton on Saturday, 17th August but saw his landmark game cut short when, after 21 minutes, he suffered a head injury ending his special occasion.

Before last weekend's league clash with Brentford, Chris Solly was presented with an award to mark those 300 appearances for the club by former roommate, teammate and current coach Johnnie Jackson.

The right back joins a number of high profile figures in Charlton's history to have reached the 300 appearances mark, becoming the first player to do so since Richard Rufus in 2002.

Charlton boss Lee Bowyer said: "For someone to give 10 years plus to a football club, it doesn’t happen anymore. So, I hope that he gets the reward that he should because I think he deserves a medal for staying at the club.

"It just doesn’t happen, I can’t say that enough! He deserves the cheering and the screaming and the singing, he deserves it all because he’s a true professional and his given almost 11 years to this football club. It’s some achievement."

Chris Solly's debut - Chris Solly made his debut in Charlton's 4-2 win over Norwich City on the final day of the Championship season, coming on the pitch after only 14 minutes as injury saw Darren Ward leave the field.

First goal for Charlton - Chris Solly found the net for the Addicks for the first time against Leyton Orient in League One. Coming off the bench to see out a narrow 2-1 lead over the O's, and with Charlton down to 10 men, Chris Solly ensured that the Addicks would emerge victorious when he latched onto a ball at the back post and steered it home to cement Charlton's victory.
