Popular Safety Officer, Mick Everett, to step down from his role at the end of the season

Charlton would like to thank Safety Officer, Mick Everett, who is stepping down from his role at the end of the season after 25 years at the club.

Everett, who worked with the club for a number of years before joining permanently in January 1997, is a highly respected and much-loved member of the Charlton staff and will continue to support the club on a matchday.

He said: “After a lot of soul searching, I have come to the decision that it is time for me to step down from my role at the club. This is a decision I have not taken lightly, indeed it causes me much heartache to do so. Working at the club has always meant more to me than just a job, it has been a massive part of my life, and something I am going to greatly miss.

“I have made this decision due to some health issues I have suffered, and also the realisation that I am not getting any younger. 

“Going forward, I am more than happy to assist the club in any way I can and I am pleased that the club want me to be involved.

“I’d like to say a big thank you to everyone – the fans, players and staff – for all of the support you have given me over the years.”

Charlton Owner, Thomas Sandgaard, said: “Mick is a true professional, who has done an excellent job for Charlton for a quarter of a century. 

“He is highly respected by everyone associated with the club and has given so much to Charlton Athletic.

“We’re pleased that he’ll be continuing to support us on matchdays and hope that he enjoys the additional time he is able to spend with his friends and loving family.”
