Charlton Keen on Safe Standing (Murray)

During last nights Q&A between CAFC non-executive Chairman Richard Murray and Charlton fans, the club's position was highlighted

After a question from the floor Mr Murray said Charlton very much supported the idea of Safe Standing and suggested the North Lower stand area be a great place for this kind of thing if it were to become allowed by league regulations.

He also confirmed he was not aware of any plans to move away from the Valley and that ACV status and good sense should mean fans would be consulted if that was proposed.

After taking on more of an ambassadorial role at Charlton, Mr Murray was very positive about the new ownership, pointing out the greater security it had brought the club. He also emphasised the club were working very hard on efforts to stave off the threat of relegation with it was hoped 3 loan signings for the first team.

When asked how he felt about the FA Cup, he said he wasn't getting any younger and hadn't yet been to the new Wembley even though it was next door to one of his offices.

The event was the first of its kind to be organised by the recently formed Charlton Athletic Supporters' Trust. This intimate style of  the evening has typified Murray's style attending at least one supporters' event per year throughout his time on the Board at Charlton, and is very much welcomed and appreciated by fans. Fans can also attend other Q&A events with Richard, see our fans diary for more information
