Another Valley PR flop
More wonderful public relations work from Charlton. A good few weeks ago I downloaded the form for the half-term kids training schools
. I filled it in, sent a cheque via my ex and waited for the information to come back.
Now I know there was a postal strike, so my ex rang the club twice and twice no one answered. And nothing came back, not a courtesy call, an email, nothing.
So I had one very disappointed son at the beginning of half-term last week. Fortunately (?) my ex managed to get him very belatedly enrolled in the local Chelsea kids training school instead and I understand it was very good.
More fortunately I am a bloody better public relations officer than anyone at the club because despite some well deserved grumbling from my son, he is still a fully committed Addick. Some parents may not be so convincing.
And just wait until they cash my cheque, because as sure as eggs are eggs I know they will.
