Christophe Lepoint DEBUT V ROTHERHAM

Congratulations to Christophe Lepoint who made his first team debut for Charlton on Saturday 31st January 2015

Full Name: Christophe Lepoint

Squad Number: 40

Valiant Number: 794

Manager: Guy Luzon

Date: 31/01/2015

Opposition: Rotherham

Ground: The Valley

Competition: Sky Bet Championship (Tier 2)

Timing: 80th minute sub for Miloš Veljković.

Position: Central midfield.

Score at introduction: 0-0

Score at completion: 1-1

Impact: Within three minutes of coming on he held the ball up in the box setting up Jordan Cousins for his goal. Sadly, despite some running around, he achieved little after that.  Looked like a trier who had not had a chance to train with his new colleagues.


He is known as someone who plays in the middle of the pitch, but his versatility gives us more options. He is a professional player with a strong mentality and can score goals.” GL on signing Lepoint.

For me it has always been a dream to play in England now I have signed I will work hard for the team from day one and do my best. I have always watched Match of the Day and other English football. I think my style will fit well in the English Championship and I believe I have the profile to progress and perform well in this league. Naturally it will take a little bit of time for me to adapt, but I am quick learner and I will be fighting for the club from the first moment.” CL on signing
