Ex-Addicks throughout the Leagues

I thought it might be fun to come up with a few ex-Addicks teams, encompassing the four divisions (if I could), who have all played in their own leagues this season. It might take the pressure off us fans a little as we sit down and work out all the various permutations that might see us get automatic promotion!

I’ve always picked a top league team over the years that had Charlton experience in it, and wondered what might be if all those players were still with Charlton, but I suppose it’s only in the last ten years or so that I could get a full team of players. Now though, despite the rubbish we have apparently had in recent years, it is the lowest league that struggles to find much Charlton representation, while the top two divisions are fairly liberally sprinkled. The team shown are my own choices - where I have had the ability to chose – but I have tried to show a team that could play together, so therefore include a suitable number of strikers, midfielders, defenders, plus a goalie. It’s amazing that the Premiership side contains six full England internationals who all once plied their trade for Charlton...and the Championship side has two more! As we get further down the divisions, the links became a little more tenuous, and need to include either players who came to the Valley on loan, or those that made few first team appearances for Charlton.

These are my choices; happy to see any alternatives via the comments button!
