Supporters can celebrate the career of Charlton legend Chris Solly by joining him and a number of special guests at his testimonial dinner on Sunday, March 17th.
On what is set to be a celebratory evening at The Valley, Solly will be joined by other Addicks greats as well as a number of current first-team stars.
Those in attendance will be treated to a three-course meal in SE7 and will have ample opportunities to speak with the man himself and all of his guests and teammates.
All the proceeds from the event will be added to Solly’s testimonial fund, which will then result in a charitable donation to Prostate Cancer UK, as well as other charities of his choosing, come the end of his testimonial year.
The club captain – now in his tenth season as a senior Addick – has made almost 300 appearances in the red of Charlton since making his debut in May 2009.
Though his goals have been few and far between, the one-club man has treated fans to some incredible moments during the last decade.
Solly was an integral part of the squad that stormed to the League One title in recording-breaking fashion in 2011/12, with his own performances during that season resulting in him being named as Addicks supporters’ Player of the Season.
He scooped the same award the following year, a campaign that also saw him notch the second of his three senior goals; a stunner in a 2-0 win against Blackpool.
Solly now, of course, regularly wears the first-team’s captain’s armband and earlier this season he grabbed arguably his best goal to date when he volleyed home in the 98th minute to earn Charlton a dramatic point at Luton Town.
