George Lapslie is confident that Charlton can finish the season strongly and win promotion to the Sky Bet Championship, after helping the club’s U23s to beat Hull City at The Valley on Monday. Lapslie - who played alongside Darren Pratley in midfield - believes the Addicks’ first team are in a very good position and says that everyone is pushing to finish the season successfully. He said: “The morale around the training ground is high. It’s quite a big time in our history as a club and, if we can get promoted, it will be massive for the club.” The 21-year-old fought hard yesterday in the U23s’ 2-1 win over Hull but insisted that no game is more important than any other at any level.“Football is football at the end of the day,” Lapslie said. “I treat the game the same, whether it’s a U23s game or a first-team game. I’d treat it the same if it was training too, so I go out there and give it 100 per cent and then see what happens.”Lapslie has been around the senior team this season, featuring in big games for The Addicks but also appearing for the U23s squad on a couple of occasions. The midfielder has made 14 first-team starts in 2018/19, scoring one goal and claiming three assists. The midfielder was pleased with the win yesterday and was eager to congratulate fellow academy graduate Albie Morgan, who scored the winning goal. Lapslie said: “Albie is a top player. We’re both playing around the first team as well and it’s unreal playing with Alb because he’s just so comfortable on the ball. I’ve known him growing up, so I’m happy for us both that we’re kicking on the first team.” Lapslie also commented on the U23s’ win, in which the Addicks had to fight hard, coming from behind to get all 3 points.He said: “It was a good game. I think the boys dug in deep and it was good to get the result. 2-1, probably not the best we’ve played but at the end of the day it’s about getting the result and I’m happy.” Tickets for Charlton’s next game – against Bradford City on Saturday, March 30th – are on sale and can be purchased online by clicking here. Article by Charlie Lane Share this News F T E» more

The Palace for Life Women’s Walking Football team has reached the finals of the FA People’s Cup after seeing off opposition from Tottenham, Portsmouth and Birmingham. The FA People’s Cup is the nation’s biggest and most inclusive five-a-side tournament, with over 45,000 teams taking part across 15 categories including futsal, disability age groups, veterans and walking football. The semi-finals took place on Sunday 24 March at Goals in Wimbledon, where Palace won all three of their fixtures and will now progress to the finals at St. George’s Park on Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 April. Team captain and Palace season ticket holder Catherine D’Rozario said: “Despite initial nerves we did extremely well to win all five matches, demonstrating how much the team have improved over the past weeks. We are all so excited and can’t quite believe that we have reached the finals and actually have the opportunity to play at England’s training ground.” Women and Girls Development Manager at Palace for Life Foundation, Roxanne Bennett, said: “We’re extremely proud of the players for this outstanding achievement in what is only their first season playing together. “Walking football gives people who might otherwise be excluded from football the chance to play, whether that’s returning to the game, or playing for the first time. “The chance to play at St. George’s Park is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity and I hope they enjoy every minute!” The winners of each category will be invited to Wembley to watch the FA Cup final and receive their trophy. Walking football is a slow-paced version of the game and is designed to help people keep an active lifestyle despite their age, as well as getting those back into playing football. Palace for Life's sessions are aimed at, but not limited to, over 40-year olds. The women’s walking football sessions take place weekly at Monks Hills Sports Centre, Thursdays, 7-8pm and are free.
