    Part three now available. This is all the Community Trust's work and not mine, we're just hosting it for them as we have access to the podcast feed - so I'm not being biased when I say it's really interesting and you should give them all a listen. 

    In the third part of the series, Steve Sutherland chats with Charlton legend Keith Peacock about his return to the Club at the start of the 1990’s, the appointment of joint managers, becoming reserve team manager, the impressive player recruitment at that time, the emerging young players, playing at Upton Park , the return to The Valley, the importance of team-bonding initiatives, the player recruitment in the 1997/98 season, the Play-Off Final against Sunderland, becoming assistant manager and the first season in the Premier League.

  • I’ve listened to the first three and they are absolutely great. What an excellent storyteller Keith Peacock is and the podcast is really well hosted by Steve Sutherland. I’d never seen some of the players playing for us in the early and mid-60s who featured in episode 1 but it’s still riveting hearing about Keith playing with and against players like Eddie Firmani, Ron Saunders, Brian Clough, Billy Bremner, John Charles and Stanley Mathews. The stories also reflect and encapsulate the changes in the game over the course of Keith’s long career.

    All in aid of a great cause too, given the fantastic work being done by the Community Trust. Looking forward to catching up with the last two episodes.
