Leader of the Opposition Jeremy Corbyn has backed the call for a fan on the board at Charlton. The Arsenal fan said that he would come to a match if invited by Charlton fans: Corbyn would come to Valley
He said, 'Charlton was a very good club. But now it seems to be becoming a plaything for billionaires who are competing with each other.'
Corbyn is a great friend of John Austin-Walker who was leader of what was then Woolwich Council at the time of the fight to return to The Valley.
