Charlton Snap Up Alnwick

Charlton Snap Up Alnwick

Charlton have been in need of another experience goalie for a few weeks really, and now have one.

The decision to let David Button leave for Brentford recently left then with only Ben Hamer as the senior goalie at the Valley, which is fine as it allows a youngster to sit on the bench and get involved in the first team squad but what happens if injury happens?

Sink or swim time for them, once again perhaps not a bad thing but this isn't always the best thing for all concerned and can do more damage than good if they're not quite ready...

Chris Powell has removed this problem by snapping up Ben Alnwick, who was a free agent.

Ahead of the transfer window closing on Monday night Barnsley agreed that it was in the best interests of all that the former Spurs man was allowed to leave Oakwell and a mutual agreement saw this.

His being a free agent allowed the Addicks to sign him outside of the transfer window with him signing a contract with the club until the end of the season, with him now battling for the no.1 spot.
