Jim Dutton joins the CAS Trust board

We are very pleased to announce that Jim Dutton will stand for election to the board of CAST at our AGM in the autumn and in the meantime will sit as a co-opted board member.

Jim is the grandson of legendary Charlton manager Jimmy Seed and he wrote and produced "James Seed Football Manager" in 1977 (Oxford University Press). He is currently working on a follow-up. His middle name is Charlton.

He is recently retired after a forty year career at ITV News and he was also Company Director of Motion Records.

His first visit to The Valley was in Dec 1966, with his father  - a former Covered Ender.

He was born three weeks prematurely as a result of the shock to his mother when she was told of her father’s sacking by Charlton.

Despite everything that has happened at CAFC in the last few years he brings his own infectious brand of optimism to the CAS Trust board.
