Charlton Park player influx
Following a less-than-successful season, when we were relegated back to Level 7 (London South-East 2), the club has been boosted by an unprecedented influx of new players. Twelve at the last count have been registered and there is real competition for all first team places. Watch this space for some pen-portraits in the near future.
The date of this photo is uncertain, but we do know some of the people in it so it will come from just before the First World War, round about 1912 when we had a pretty strong team. At the time, of course, we were the Old Charltonians.
The captain, holding the ball, is FR (Freddie) Roberts. He played half-back (scrum-half?) for Kent and also represented London against Paris that year. We cannot be completely certain but the player on his right is probably HJ Turpin, who also played for the county.
Roberts survived the war to be captain again in 1919. On his left is Harold Hollis who was in the Kent side that won the County Championship in 1923.
