CHARLTON fans are invited to the funeral of club historian Colin Cameron who passed away on Christmas Day.

Colin was the club’s official historian for almost 40 years and first visited The Valley in 1947.

He suffered a mini-stroke at the start of December and had been recovering at home when he suffered a relapse on Christmas Eve and died the following morning in hospital, aged 76.

Addicks supporters can pay their respects to Colin at his funeral in Sidcup on Wednesday, January 16th.

It will take place at Our Lady of the Rosary Church, Burnt Oak Lane, at 11.30am, and the service will be followed by burial at Sidcup Cemetery, Foots Cray Lane.

Well-known among fans as the author of the The Valiant 500, published in 1991, and Home and Away with Charlton Athletic, first published in 1992 and updated in 2003, he also regularly wrote for the club's matchday programme.

In May he received a special lifetime achievement award to mark his longstanding contribution to the club.

A minute’s applause was held in his memory before the Addicks’ Boxing Day game against Ipswich.
