Overseas groundhopper ticks off The Valley

Groundhopper Yidong Han visited The Valley for the first time last month as he went behind the scenes in SE7 with tour host and CharltonTV stalwart Terry Smith.

A PHD student from central China, Yidong intends to visit every stadium up and down the country while he studies overseas.

“I have always wanted to visit every stadium in the country,” Yidong explains. “I have done lots of them so far but still have many left. Recently I have visited Tottenham, Manchester City, Manchester United, Fulham, Chelsea, Wembley and West Ham. Now that I have visited Charlton, my next stadium is Norwich.

“I especially enjoyed the story where the fans dug the stadium out to help the club get started,” he adds. “I don’t think I have heard of this story before so it's very unique. Charlton has a long history.”
