Richard Collins

I am sad to report the death of Richard Collins, ex CAFC Chairman and long serving director. He served as a director under five Charlton chairmen from Michael Gliksten to Martin Simons and had two spells as chairman in the 1980s.

Former director David Sumners said, 'A Charlton man through and through, a very good friend, very kind with a big heart. He will be sorely missed.'

A long-term fan commented, 'That is very sad news and breaks another link with the most enjoyable and successful time in Charlton's post war history.'

  1. Richard Collins' passing serves as a salutary reminder of when the Directors of yesteryear contributed to a football club for altruistic reasons and not selfish financial gain that sadly is all too prevalent today .
