Kanu Records First Senior Addicks Goal

Kanu Records First Senior Addicks Goal

Current LFE apprentice Daniel Kanu scored his first goal for Charlton Athletic last night, netting the opener for the south London side in their eventual 3-2 loss at Plymouth Argyle in the Papa Johns Trophy.

Kanu, who is in the second-year of his apprenticeship, put Charlton ahead after just eight minutes. The 18-year-old’s intense pressing forced Argyle’s Oscar Halls into a mistake on the edge of his own box, Kanu then used his strength to shrug off his defender, before seeing his first effort saved by Callum Burton, yet made no mistake in finishing at the second time of asking.

Kanu said: “So, so, so pleased. I’ve been working so hard throughout the whole season to try and get that first goal, so now I’ve got that first one I can push on from here. I’ve been unlucky in recent weeks to not get a goal, I’ve been getting in the right areas and I think that’s the most important thing, getting in the right areas so I can do my damage. I believe in myself and the team around me believe in me as well, so today I’m happy I was able to deliver for the team.”

“It’s a big moment for Daniel,” added Assistant Manager Scott Marshall.
