Charlton Athletic Women have taken time from preparations for their next league fixture against Crystal Palace on November 25 to visit schools in the South-East.

Currently sitting third in the second tier of women’s football, two points behind leaders Tottenham, players visited Morden Mount Primary School with the aim of inspiring the next generation of talent as part of the Charlton Athletic School’s partnership.

Captain Grace Coombs was joined by Ellie Dorey and Chloe Brunton-Wilde on Thursday morning as they led the special assembly.

The players spoke to children about the advancement of women in sport and their individual routes into playing football, before taking a Q&A.

Morden Mount was the first of many school that will be visited as part of the partnership.

General Manager Steve Adamson said: “We want to inspire the next generation of girls to start playing football and the room lit up when the players walked in for a special assembly.”
