For some it is Paris in the Spring. For others it is New England in the Fall. For us it has always been Accrington in August.
And our dreams have come true this morning with the publication of the EFL League One fixtures for next season and the news that Charlton will be playing their first ever fixture against Accrington Stanley on Saturday August 18th at the Crown Ground, Accrington.
The game will be our club's third League fixture. We kick off on August 4th at Sunderland but this is no novelty as I'm pretty certain we've played them before. The following Saturday we play host to Shrewsbury and I know we've played them before. These games are mere curtain raisers for what is undoubtedly the main event on August 18th.
