A flag has been raised above Greenwich Town Hall to show support to Charlton Athletic before they travel to Wembley.

Yesterday, leader of the council Danny Thorpe was joined by football stars Naby Sarr and Krystian Bielik, on the steps of the building.

In a show of support for the team, who will play Sunderland in the League One play-off final on Sunday, supporters gathered to see the flag hoisted.

Cllr Thorpe said: “It’s fantastic to see the home team on the road to Wembley. Football is a game which unites communities across the globe and inspires children and adults to get active and have a kick-about too.

"I wish the team the best of luck on Sunday and hope that our show of support gives them the boost they need to make the Championship. Come on you Addicks!”
