Charlton Park may well be reverting to the Old Charltonians, its name in the years before 1920. ‘We need to improve our image’ says Doug Hursey, ‘and a more direct link with our history is one way of doing it’. This could be accompanied by a change of club colours, back to the black and white stripes of old.

Other name changes are under consideration. Stade Charlton has been recommended by two first team players.
