Special offer made to Valley season ticket holders
1:19pm Wednesday 10th October 2012 in Sport
CHARLTON season ticket holders can gain free entry for their women’s team’s Premier League cup clash with Brighton at Thamesmead Town’s Bayliss Avenue ground on Sunday.
While the men’s team have the weekend off, the Charlton women’s side go into their second league cup game off the back of successive wins, showcasing two different sides to their game.
Two weeks ago they demolished Portsmouth 7-2 at home thanks to a Gemma Bryan hat-trick before traveling to Cardiff and coming away with a hard-fought 1-0 win, Bryan getting the goal once again.
The Addicks’ first league cup group stage game was a convincing 4-1 win over rivals Gillingham and, with the confidence flowing, caretaker manager Bill Long hopes to make a real impact on the competition.
He said: “It will be a good game against Brighton. We want to do well in the cups and go as far as we can so we will put out our strongest possible team. Hopefully we can dig out another win.
“They are going to come out and up their game because they are coming to a National Division side and we have to be ready for that.
“We can’t underestimate them and think it is going to be a walk in the park. We have to dig in and play well and put Brighton under pressure.”
“Going forward we are looking really good. Although we missed three or four good chances [against Cardiff we are creating chances, which is good.”
Ticket prices for Sunday’s 2pm kick-off between Charlton and Thamesmead Town for non season ticket holders are adults £4, concessions £2.
