Paul Hart seals Charlton Athletic return as assistant manager – South London News

Paul Hart has returned to Charlton Athletic as assistant manager.

The 70-year-old, who also had a spell in caretaker charge of Crystal Palace, was academy director at the Addicks when Nathan Jones was brought in as the club’s U21 boss in 2012.

Hart has since worked with Jones – appointed manager on Sunday – at Luton Town and Stoke City.

Jones said: “It’s very good to be back.

“I’ve still got lots of old friends here and some very happy memories. I’m very much looking forward to the role.

“I’ve done it before with Nathan and we’ve known each other a good while now from the Charlton days. We’re looking forward to helping Charlton achieve what they want to achieve. Nathan’s a very good coach and ultimately we try and make the individuals and the team better.”

Jones added: “We’re delighted to welcome Paul back to Charlton and it’s a real coup for the club.

“He’s someone that I’ve obviously known for a long time, someone who I trust, someone who knows the club and someone with masses of experience. It’s important to get as many people that know how we play around us.”
