How about a minutes silence for Charlie Hall?
I was sad to hear about the death of Charlie Hall
last week. Seeing him hurtling across the pitch with his black bag and dripping 'magic' sponge will be a memory that will stay with me forever. Charlie joined the club in 1943 and you have to flick back through a lot of team photos' in Colin Cameron's Home and Away book
to find one without Charlie in it. I know because I recently did it.
I understand there was a message book in circulation before the game today and that's very nice and something for his family to treasure but what about a minutes silence? Blimey I've stood many times quietly for a minute wondering who I was paying my respects to, but Charlie gave 44 years of his life to the club and his Charlton life deserves to be honoured.
