When CAST’s Zoom Q&A with Thomas Sandgaard took place in December, we discovered that at least three of the online attendees were based in Scotland: CAST Chair Heather McKinlay and members Robert Anderson and Adrian Howlett. They have since met (virtually, of course) and are keen to establish a new group for Charlton Fans in Scotland, building on our new owner’s ambitions to develop the club’s potential far and wide.
The primary aim of the group is to establish informal links and a social community among all Charlton fans based north of the border, strengthening ties with the club. We envisage organising occasional Charlton-themed meetings and get-togethers in Scotland. Numbers and interest permitting, we could possibly co-ordinate trips to matches in the North of England and to The Valley – who knows, one day perhaps even chartering a plane to follow the resurgent Addicks on a European adventure?
Robert says: “It can feel a bit isolated sometimes as a Charlton fan in Scotland, yet it seems there are more of us than I realised. If you’re based here, do get in touch and help us get this group off the ground. It’s free and open to all Addicks across Scotland, whether or not you are a CAST member. Simply email me on email@example.com.”
