Former Charlton first-team coach Simon Clark has joined Notts County.

Clark will be the Under-18s boss next season after leaving the Addicks last month.

Clark was Charlton U18s manager and had a brief spell with the U21s side, before making the step-up to the first-team last year.

News Shopper understands that Clark was highly thought of by ex-Addicks bosses Karel Fraeye and Jose Riga.

Speaking about his departure, Charlton manager Karl Robinson said: “We spoke to him about one or two things internally that he didn’t think were for him.

“He wants to challenge himself in a different way. He is another great guy and someone that I will stay in contact with.”
