Lee Bowyer eyes promotion after penning permanent contract at Charlton Athletic

Jack Kitson by Jack Kitson / 06 September 2018, 10:02

After what seems like an eternity Charlton Athletic have at long last appointed Lee Bowyer as their permanent manager.

Bowyer was placed in caretaker charge of the club back in March following the departure of Karl Robinson.

The former Leeds star went on to lead the Addicks into the League One play-offs, where they were beaten by Shrewsbury Town.

Bowyer’s managerial status remained “caretaker” as we ventured into the new season, but now after registering eight points from their opening six games, Charlton have handed the 41-year-old a permanent deal.

After putting pen to paper Bowyer has expressed his desire to lead the club up into the Championship (via www.cafc.co.uk):

“I’m delighted and very proud to be appointed Manager. I said when I first took charge that it was a fairytale to be back working at Charlton, the club I started playing at. I love the club and will give everything to get promotion.

“We got the players in that we wanted this summer and this now gives us the stability. The players and the staff have been brilliant and I am looking forward to continuing working with them as together we aim for promotion.

“The fans have been outstanding too and I want to thank them for all their support at the end of last season and the beginning of this season. They have supported me from that first minute of my first game against Plymouth and we all want to do well for them.

“I’d like to thank the owner too for having belief in me and giving me the opportunity and Richard Murray whose support and guidance has been important during my time here.”

Charlton are next in action on Saturday at home to Wycombe who are currently 16th in the table with one win from six games.
