Charlton Athletic's - Hall of Fame
We are delighted to announce that London FA Board Director Paul Mortimer was this week elected into the Charlton Athletic Hall of Fame. He played professionally for the club in two spells between 1987 and 1999 and made 225 league and cup appearances, which included the 1997-98 season in which they gained promotion to the Premier League. Paul was a highly talented and exciting footballer and always a great favourite with supporters. This honour reflects his enduring popularity and his name will be added to the Hall of Fame Board which is to be found in the Charlton Museum, alongside such legends as Sam Bartram, Don Welsh, Eddie Firmani and Chris Powell.
After his playing career ended, Paul held coaching roles with Wimbledon, Arsenal, Torquay United and Brentford. In 2007, Paul returned to Charlton Athletic to coach the club's women's team and has also previously worked for Kick It Out, an organisation with the objective of tackling racism and discrimination in football.
Paul has been on the London FA Board since November 2017 as a Non-Executive Football Director and brings to this position significant expertise in equality, inclusion and diversity and of course his hugely impressive professional football background and experience.
