Charlton kick-started their pre-season campaign with a comfortable victory against Welling United after goals.

Here is how News Shopper rated the new faces in the Addicks’ friendly win.

Ashley Maynard Brewer – 6 – Other than holding a well hit-free kick by Jack Jebb the young shot stopper was hardly tested in the second half.

Tom Lockyer – 6 – Miscommunication on a set piece saw him have a bit of a wobbly start in a Charlton shirt. He grew more into the game as it went on, and gained some valuable minutes playing with his new team-mates.

Macauley Bonne – 7 – Playing as a lone striker, the ex-Orient man showed flashes of his strength and skill. He ran the channels well, which stretched the Welling defence, and allowed the midfielders to make runs in behind.

Brenden Sarpong Wiredu – 8 – The 19-year old pressed high on the right-flank and always provided an option for the diagonal ball, enabled him to open the scoring early on.

Abraham Odoh – 8 – His flamboyant style meant he was a thorn in Welling’s back side throughout the first half, leading him to be on the end of many questionable tackles. Displayed great composure to slot in Charlton’s second.

Ben Dempsey – 6 – Provided valuable service into Bonne with crosses and lofted passes into the box. Moved the ball well when in possession and made vital tackles when Welling broke on the counter.  

Ben Purrington – 6 – Fitted seamlessly into the defence in the second-half and shut out Welling’s Anthony Cook. However, his execution in the final third looked a little rusty.

Taylor Maloney – 5 – Played a superb lofted ball into Purrington in the opening minutes of the second-half but didn’t quite dictate the middle of the park in the same fashion as Albie Morgan did.

Chuks Aneke – 6 – Besieged the Welling defence with his strength, holding up play but also steaming into defenders like a train. Faded a little bit as the game went on, could be  question of fitness. It’s early doors though.
