Charlton sealed the signing of full-back Adam Chicksen on a free transfer on August 30th.

The 24-year-old put pen to paper on a one-year deal in SE7 and became Manager Russell Slade’s tenth signing of the summer and made his debut in the Checkatrade Trophy clash with Southampton U23s later that evening.

After joining his hometown club Milton Keynes Dons at the age of 14, he made his senior bow for the Buckinghamshire club just two years later. Comfortable playing both at left-back and right-back, he went on to make 78 league appearances for the Dons – and also had a short loan stint with Leyton Orient – before signing a three-year deal at Brighton & Hove Albion in 2013.

Having missed the first half of the 2013/14 season with an ankle injury, he made his Albion debut that December and went on to feature in the Championship’s end-of-season play-offs.

The following campaign, he joined Gillingham - and then Fleetwood Town - on loan. While with the Cod Army, Chicksen helped them to a 10th-place finish in their first ever season in League One.

He rejoined Leyton Orient on loan last year, playing six times, before returning to Albion, where he featured in their 3-2 win against the Addicks at AMEX Stadium.

Chicksen then returned to another of his former loan sides, Gillingham, where he went on to play six matches for the play-off-chasing Gills.
