After spending the last few weeks on trial at the South London club, Charlton Athletic have signed Phoenix Sports’ Eddie Allsopp on a two-year deal.

Attacking midfielder Allsopp was a regular in the reserves set-up and had excelled in the youth sides while gaining his football experience at the club.

The club say the skilful 17-year-old has ‘caught the attention of all that have seen him play over the last few years and it is no surprise to any of us that a League club has snapped him up.’
