Ex-Charlton Athletic plc chairman Derek Chappell and fellow ex-directors David Sumners and Bob Whitehand

Ex-Addicks directors respond over loan claims

Three former Charlton directors - Derek Chappell, David Sumners and Bob Whitehand - have asked VOTV to release the following statement on their behalf.


Dear Charlton Fans,


There has been much speculation in the press - and incorrect statements made - about the outstanding loans due to us (and others) which are secured over certain club assets.


To be clear, we have been consistent in our position in that, having been accommodating on the last two changes of ownership, our charges remain over the club assets until our loans are repaid in full.


We are neither in any position to block any sale of the club (and would not want to) nor to resist the repayment of our loans (and the subsequent lifting of the charges).


The position is - and has been made - clear to the current owners and the speculation is an unnecessary distraction.


We do not anticipate having to add to the above statement as we hope you agree it’s very clear and reasonable.  Thank you.


The final scheduled issue of the 2019/20 season is available to order here. There are three pricing options - for UK (first class), European and worldwide delivery. All of them then add UK postage and packing to the price shown, making the total amount correct for your delivery address.
