|Manager: Karl Robinson
Charlton confirmed Karl Robinson and their first-team Manager on November 24th 2016.
The highly-rated 36-year-old, who led Milton Keynes Dons to automatic promotion to the Sky Bet Championship 18 months ago, signed a two-and-a-half-year contract at The Valley.
Prior to commencing his role with MK Dons in 2010, Robinson coached at Liverpool’s Academy before taking on a role with Blackburn Rovers’ first team.
During more than six years at Stadium MK, he led the team to successive fifth-place finishes, before securing second place and promotion to the Championship for the first time in the club’s history in 2014/15.
Earlier that season, Robinson masterminded arguably MK Dons’ most famous victory – a 4-0 League Cup rout of Manchester United.
Richie Barker: First-team Coach
Charlton appointed Richie Barker to their coaching staff in December 2016.
A striker in his playing days, Barker represented the likes of Brighton & Hove Albion, Macclesfield Town, Rotherham United and Hartlepool United, before beginning his coaching career with Sheffield Wednesday’s academy.
He was named as Bury’s youth team boss in 2010 and took caretaker charge at Gigg Lane in 2011, leading the club to promotion and earning the job on a permanent basis.
In August 2012, he took charge of Crawley Town, but departed three months later to take the hot seat at Portsmouth. Having left Fratton Park in March 2014, he was brought to Stadium MK by Karl Robinson, who he reunited with at The Valley.
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.
First-team coach: Chris O'Loughlin
Chris O'Loughlin joined Charlton's coaching staff on a contract until the end of the 2016/17 season in November 2016.
O’Loughlin, a UEFA Pro License holder, recently worked as Assistant Manager for Northern Ireland U21s – where he coached the Addicks’ Mikhail Kennedy. Prior to that, he spent three seasons at Sint-Truiden where, as Assistant Head Coach, he helped them to promotion and then, as Head Coach, successfully kept them in the Belgian Pro League.
The Limerick-born coach has also gained experience as Assistant Head Coach at Australian A League side Melbourne Victory and South African club Orlando Pirates, as well as Congoloese club AS Vita where, in 2009, they reached the last eight of the CAF Confederations Cup.
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.
