Charlton Athletic Football Club

Group  From 9/6/1905 

Categories: Sport / Games

The club was founded from the combination of a number of youth clubs in south-east London. Their nickname is the 'Addicks' which is supposedly derived from 'haddocks'. One of the explanations of the name, is that a local fishmonger, who helped to finance the club, would treat the players to a meal after their matches. If they lost, they would dine on the less popular cod, but a victory would secure a haddock supper.
