“The 18-year-old player has been included in Charlton’s last three matchday line-ups due to an injury to Harry Isted. Henry Molyneux, who initially joined the club at the age of 16 after an impressive pre-season friendly with Dulwich Hamlet, has been serving as a backup for the first-choice goalkeeper, Ashley Maynard-Brewer.
Molyneux expressed his gratitude for the development he’s undergone, both on and off the field, during his time at the club. He acknowledged the support of numerous individuals who have played a role in his journey so far.
Steve Avory, the Academy director, praised Molyneux, describing him as a hardworking young goalkeeper who has earned his first professional contract. Avory highlighted Molyneux’s natural communication skills and charisma, which enhance his goalkeeping abilities. He also noted Molyneux’s agility, bravery, and the knack for making challenging saves.
Molyneux, a local talent from southeast London, shared his excitement about extending his tenure at Charlton. He emphasized the strong personal connection he has with the club, given the support he receives from friends and family who are also Charlton supporters, making it a perfect fit for him from the beginning.”
