Charlton Athletic: Club Profile
Well, we hadn’t much to say about the Addicks until they inflicted our worst-ever defeat on us in October 2018; Boro’ losing 8-0 at home in the Checkatrade Trophy. Up until then, our record against them was so-so to be fair. And, yes, sadly the Checkatrade Trophy does go down as a proper, official game and that. Sigh.

Travel Information – Distance: 51 miles
There are a few options for getting to Charlton, although we're going with one that avoids as much travel through inner parts of London as possible. Therefore, head southbound on the A1(M) and clockwise on the M25 until you reach Junction 27 for the M11.
Join the southbound M11 for nearly eight miles towards London (NE). At the end of the motorway, exit onto the A406 North Circular Road (S) towards the A12 and A13. At the junction for the A12, exit the A406 and take the fifth exit - this will be the A12 for Central London.
Continue ahead on to the A102 after more than seven miles for the Blackwall Tunnel. After emerging south of the River Thames, exit for the A206 and take the second exit towards Woolwich and Charlton. Continue over the roundabout with Halfords on your left.
At the next roundabout, take the third exit to double back on yourself before turning left into Westmoor Street. This will become Charlton Lane; continue ahead for 0.1 miles and turn right onto Harvey Gardens. You will now be behind one of the goals at The Valley.
As you come up the Woolwich Road from the Blackwall Tunnel, it might be possible to find street parking in the industrial estates to the left hand side (of which there are plenty). Otherwise, continuing along and getting nearer the ground may present further street opportunities, but this is a residential area and has a local scheme in force.

Charlton railway station is handily located for The Valley. Leave the station and turn right down Charlton Church Lane to come back across the railway. Take the first left into Floyd Road and the ground should become visible. For the away end, turn right into Valley Grove and then left into Sam Bartram Close to get behind the necessary stand.
