From failing to get re-promoted in 1958 to dropping down to the Third Division
In 1958 the club failed in their bid to get re-promoted. Defeat to Blackburn Rovers on the last day of the season kept them in the Second Division where they would stay for the next 15 seasons. Years without any significant development and a pattern of selling-off the best players finally saw Charlton leave the Second Division in 1973 when they dropped down into the Third.
