Burnley – Beware the Smurfs of May

May 5th, 2016 - Heather McKinlay looks back four years... All seemed rosy red in the Valley garden for the final match of the 2011/12 season. A sell-out crowd packed every stand. We took our seats early to witness the spine-tingling spectacle of the Red Devils parachuting into the stadium, landing with an audible thud then skipping and skidding […]

Leicester – A lesson for Roland

May 4th, 2016 - CAS Trust Board Member Richard Hunt pens a self-confessed "caffeine-fuelled rant" to our owner: Dear Mr Duchatelet, It occurred to me today that you might be taking comfort or even refuge in Leicester's success. You may argue that it shows you don't have to spend big to succeed. That is true. Unfortunately if you look […]

“The arrogance of certainty” – brilliant Charlie Connelly article

May 4th, 2016 - For those who missed writer and broadcaster Charlie Connelly's recent blog article on the current state of our club there is a link below. Connelly is the author of "Many Miles - a season in the life of Charlton Athletic" (2001) but is perhaps better known for "Stamping Grounds - Liechtenstein's quest for the World […]

CAS Trust recommends owner to sell

April 29th, 2016 - As members are aware, the Board of CAS Trust have repeatedly requested to meet with Roland Duchâtelet in order to represent to him the concerns of our members about his stewardship of the club. Such a meeting has always been refused but we were recently offered instead a meeting with Richard Murray and Katrien Meire. The Board discussed this […]

Accrington Stanley – We’re coming for you

April 28th, 2016 - It seems unlikely that Charlton will be playing a first ever league fixture against Burton next year as they will almost certainly pass us on their way up. Similarly, we may be spared a trip to Fleetwood as they hover just one place above the relegation zone. But there is a strong likelihood that we will […]

Best value for a Fiver - CAS Trust

Charlton Athletic Supporters' Trust has been formed to give fans a voice and to act as positive force to help preserve Charlton Athletic Football Club for its fans and community.

Charlton fans are widely attribute with being among the first fans and club to widely utilise fan participation. To begin with this was inspired by an epic struggle to return CAFC to it's historic home, however this partnership between fans and Board went on to preside over a dramatic reversal in the clubs fortunes culminating in a return to the top flight in a Premier Class stadium for a number of years. Charlton now occupy the Championship (tier 2 of the English League) after a two year spell in League 1 (tier 3) which ended in them winning the League 1 title.

The Club changed hands in January 2014 after former owners Tony Jiminez and Michael Slater sold the club to Belgian businessman Roland Duchâtelet with other former owner Richard Murray staying on as a non-executive Chairman.

Charlton Athletic Supporters' Trust was formed on the 20th anniversary of the clubs return to the Valley on 5 December 2012.  It celebrated its launch that day, also marking the anniversary in the clubs bar Bartram's.

Charlton Athletic Supporters' Trust is committed to being a representative, professional, independent, democratic and accountable body.

As outlined in the second meeting of the interim steering group, the Charlton Athletic Supporters' Trust aims:

“To Preserve Charlton Athletic Football Club for This and Future Generations”.

This is broken down as follows:

  • To give the fans a voice and represent their interests in the running of the Club.
  • To actively support Charlton Athletic Football Club in achieving success both on and off the pitch.
  • To assist in preserving the long term future of the Club, it’s history, culture, values and identity in our Community.
