Charlton Rangers FC’s anniversary celebrations continued earlier this month when the club held its 50th anniversary dinner at the Brands Hatch Hotel.

It was a record breaking attendance, with 170 guests tucking in at the celebration dinner.

Charlton Athletic legend Keith Peacock and his wife Lesley were the guests of honour with the former midfielder presenting the players’ awards.

Among the recipients were Doug Grovenor, who received a long service award having took part in the very first game for the club and is still playing today for the Rangers super vets team.

Former first team manager Andrew Lockyer and founding member John Commerford were both bestowed with the club’s highest honour of life vice-president.

The event was attended by eight of the original playing line-up that started the club off 50 years ago.

This was the third in a series of planned events this year, which have included the president’s dinner and the legends XI match held at The Valley on May 10.

The final event sees the launch of the Charlton Rangers golf society at Addington Palace Golf Club, where current and former members will be competing for the Commerford-Hill Challenge Cup.

The cup is being named after two of the club’s founding members Commerford and the late Peter Hill.
