Unlike so many other English clubs, Charlton Athletic are the creation of the community. The club was formed on 5 June 1906 by a group of lads living in the streets by the Thames in an area, which now borders the Thames Barrier. If you think the nomadic endeavours of Charlton Athletic occurred only in the last fifteen years in the club’s history you’d be wrong. Siemen’s Meadow, Woolwich Common, Pound Park, the Angerstein Athletic ground in Horne Lane and the first spell at The Valley in 1920 all saw the red and white colours of the club.
A proposed amalgamation with Catford Southend ignited a move to The Mount in Catford in 1923, coinciding with the introduction of light and dark blue striped shirts. Charlton Athletic returned to The Valley, wearing red shirts again, in 1924. Although Charlton Athletic may have been valiant in battle, proudly wearing a sword on their shirts, it was the club’s location at The Valley that give rise to the nickname ‘The Valiants’. It came about after a competition among supporters in 1963-64. The ground saga of course reignited in 1985 when Charlton took up residence at Selhurst Park, moving on to Upton Park in 1991, only to welcome with fanfares and fan acclaim a return to the Valley in 1992. Charlton Athletic are known as ‘Addicks’. There are a number of rumours and suggestions as to how this name came about. It is thought that Charlton’s “Addicks” nickname derives from South London slang for the haddock fish, although there are conflicting versions of the exact derivation.
