Richard Rufus and Jason Euell in the Superstore on Saturday

Valley-Gold-Day-2014 (1)

Richard Rufus and Jason Euell will be meeting fans and signing autographs in the Charlton Athletic Superstore ahead of the Huddersfield Town match from 1.30pm this Saturday 28 February.

The former Premiership stars, now both coaches with Charlton’s Academy, are helping to celebrate the club’s annual Academy Day, which is organised through Valley Gold and recognises the important work done by those in the club’s youth set-up.

This season has seen former graduates Karlan Ahearne-Grant and Joe Gomez make their debuts, and Dillon Phillips has also joined up with a first team squad featuring established home-grown stars Chris Solly, Callum Harriott, Lawrie Wilson, Jordan Cousins and Morgan Fox.

Initially founded to support the return to the Valley, Valley Gold now enables supporters to provide financial support to the development of young players at Charlton Athletic, and has contributed in excess of £2.5m to the Academy. Supporters’ Trust Treasurer, Rich Pemberton, is one of two supporters’ representatives who sit on the Valley Gold Committee.
