Calls for Charlton to rename stand after Alan Curbishley

A petition has been launched to rename a stand at the Valley after Alan Curbishley.

It’s now almost 30 years since Curbs took the reigns alongside Steve Gritt. He took sole charge in 1995 and led the club to one of the most successful periods in its history.

The call is to Charlton’s new owner Thomas Sandgaard from former Charlton chief executive Peter Varney. He has written about the plan in the newest edition of Voice of The Valley.

Curbishley managed the club until 2006. Curbs enjoyed a great spell including promotions such as the famous 1998 play-off final win against Sunderland –  possibly the best game I’ve ever seen.
