A LEAGUE One football club that failed to reach the Championship are preparing for a round of redundancies.

Charlton Athletic Football Club announced on Monday that an undisclosed number of their staff have been placed at risk of redundancy.

This comes after it was revealed that chief executive Steve Waggott is leaving his post at the end of the month.

Managing director Stephen Kavanagh said: "As a consequence of the team not regaining Championship status, we have to put in place plans for life in League One next season.

"This has necessitated more cuts in operating costs across the whole club, with every line of every department's budget being scrutinised, and these affect both football and non-football staff.

"This is going to be a difficult period for everyone at the club, but it is essential that we all work together to find the best outcome from a very demanding period."

A period of formal consultation will take place with staff and departments affected in a bid to find alternative ways to come in on budget.
