|Manager: Russell Slade
Sponsor: Regular Cleaning Services
Russell Slade was appointed as Manager of Charlton Athletic in June 2016, signing a three-year contract.
Possessing an near-unrivalled amount of experience, Slade’s managerial career has spanned over 20 years and has seen him take charge of almost 800 matches in professional football.
After enjoying two spells at Sheffield United and one at Notts County as caretaker manager, he landed his first permanent managerial role at Scarborough.
Upon joining The Gulls, they were cut adrift at the bottom of the Conference, but a stunning turnaround saw them record 39 points from their final 19 league matches to achieve safety.
His next two roles saw him take over at Grimsby Town and then Yeovil Town, where he guided them to the League Two and League One play-offs respectively.
Slade was tasked with leading Brighton & Hove Albion to third-tier safety in 2009, a feat that he achieved, and he then moved to the Capital to join Leyton Orient a year later.
During his 242-game spell with the O’s, he transformed them from a relegation-threatened side to promotion challengers - reaching the League One play-off final in 2014. He won 103 matches while in charge and possesses the highest win percentage as a manager in Orient’s history.
The Wokingham-born boss then took over at Cardiff City where, in two seasons at the helm in Wales, he guided them to 11th and eighth-placed finishes in the Championship.
Assistant Manager: Kevin Nugent
Kevin Nugent linked up with Russell Slade for a second time when he was appointed as our Assistant Manager in July 2016.
The pair enjoyed a hugely-successful, four-year spell together at Leyton Orient between 2010 and 2014 that saw them reach the League One play-off final.
Nugent, 47, joined us from Luton Town, where he had been working under former Charlton coach Nathan Jones.
Nugent began his playing career with Orient, making 94 league appearances and scoring 20 goals between 1985 and 1992. From there, he joined Plymouth Argyle and would spend three years in Devon, before switching to Bristol City and then Cardiff City.
In 2002, he rejoined Orient and, a year later, made the final move of his playing career when he switched to Swansea City. Nugent would enjoy three seasons in South Wales and his coaching career would also begin with the Swans.
He worked as Assistant Manager to Kenny Jackett and in 2007 he returned to east London for a second time. He would remain at Orient until early 2016 when he joined Jones’ coaching staff at Luton.
First-team Coach: Simon Clark
Former defender Simon Clark enjoyed a lengthy playing career in the lower leagues, turning out over 100 times for Peterborough United and Leyton Orient, as well as a spell with Colchester United where he captained the side. He began his career at Lincoln City before representing a number of non-league clubs, progressing his career into the Football League when he moved from Stevenage Borough to Peterborough in 1994.
After leaving Colchester in 2002, he spent three years in Singapore as player coach and then player manager for Woodlands Wellington. While in Singapore Clark obtained the Asian Federation A licence as a coach, following up by obtaining the UEFA A qualification on his return to Europe. He returned to the UK in 2005 and was appointed player-manager at Isthmian League Premier Division club Leyton.
In 2007, Clark joined Lincoln City's youth setup and managed the reserve team before moving up to positions as Chief Scout and First-team Coach. He was in temporary charge of the Lincoln first team for four matches in September 2009 before heading to Preston North End as a scout and match analyst.
Management jobs with non-league Stamford and Worksop Town followed before Clark joined Charlton to assist with the U18s. A popular figure around Sparrows Lane, he quickly moved up to the U21s on a temporary basis, overseeing a hugely impressive unbeaten run and became First-team Coach under Jose Riga in February 2016.
Goalkeeper Coach: Lee Turner
Lee Turner arrived at The Valley from Bolton Wanderers in July 2015.
As a player, Turner represented Ebbsfleet United and Margate before he first delved into coaching with Southend United.
During an eight-year stint at Roots Hall, Turner became close acquaintances with Dougie Freedman, who finished his playing career with the Shrimpers between 2008 and 2010. Freedman went on to be appointed as manager of his former club Crystal Palace and one of his first moves was to recruit Turner as his goalkeeping coach in January 2011.
After impressing at Palace, Turner made the move north to Bolton when Freedman was appointed their manager in 2012.
Turner had remained at the Macron Stadium following Freedman's departure before he made the move to SE7.
