Fuller signs new deal
Fuller, 32, refused a new deal
at Stoke last month paving the way for his arrival at ‘The Valley’, a
place he knows all too well, after playing three games for Charlton’s
reserves in 2001 before deciding to sign for neighbours Crystal Palace.
The Jamaican international’s deal with Charlton carries an option for an additional 12 months and makes the south east London club Fuller’s seventh British club after spells at Hearts, Preston North End, Portsmouth, Southampton, Ipswich Town and Stoke.
Fuller, who joined Stoke in 2006, scored 43 goals in 182
appearances for ‘The Potters’ during his six-year spell at the outfit,
but decided it was time for a new challenge after not being able to
reach an agreement with the coaching staff, following the expiration of
his contract at the end of last season.
The striker is also a figural part of Jamaica’s national senior
football set-up having been involved in the island’s 2002, 2006 and 2010
FIFA World Cup campaigns while also featuring in the 2005 and 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup competitions.
Fuller was introduced to his latest set of fans at half-time
during yesterday’s NPower Championship match against Leicester, which
Charlton won by 2-1.
