‘Brilliant’ – Charlton Athletic boss Nathan Jones heaps praise on summer recruit

Charlton Athletic boss Nathan Jones has labelled Alfie May as ‘brilliant’ after their weekend win.

Charlton Athletic beat Carlisle United 3-2 at home in their latest League One outing with the striker on the scoresheet twice.

May, 30, has scored 24 goals in all competitions so far this season, 20 of which have come in the league.

London News Online: “He’s a clever player – a great lad. He is brilliant around the place. He thinks about his game and thinks about his movement.

“He doesn’t just go and play off the cuff. He’s a wonderful player. I said to him: ‘Things will turn, just keep doing the right things. Making the same, good runs’ and he has. Now he’s turned the corner. The new start was two goals in three. Now it’s four in four. It looks a lot rosier.”

Charlton Athletic ace hailed

Charlton’s decision to land May last summer from fellow third tier outfit Cheltenham Town has turned into a masterstroke.

He moved to The Valley in early July and penned a two-year deal with the London outfit, with the club holding an option to extend his stay by a further 12 months on top of that.

It has been an eventful first campaign for the player with the Addicks and he is now on his third manager after Dean Holden and Michael Appleton’s spells. Despite the team’s struggles under their previous two bosses, May has remained pretty consistent throughout in front of goal.

Prior to his move to Charlton, he fired 67 goals in 165 matches for Cheltenham, having also played for Doncaster Rovers in the past.

May is a great asset for Jones to have in his squad. He is a proven goal scorer at this level and if they can keep him fit next term, they could have a chance of competing way further up the table.

His goals have helped the Addicks rise away from danger over recent weeks. They were in a bit of trouble but have climbed up to 14th in the table and 10 points above the bottom three with eight matches left to play.

Next up for Jones’ men is an away trip to Fleetwood Town this weekend and May will be keen to add to his tally. He is the top scorer in the league right now ahead of Barnsley’s Devante Cole and Stevenage’s Jamie Reid.
