Charlton Athletic have allowed academy graduate Alfie Doughty to make a move away from The Valley as he looks to get some first-team football under his belt.
Despite being highly thought of by Lee Bowyer and being part of the pre-season set up for the Addicks, Doughty has struggled to get into a team which has made an excellent start to life back in the Championship.
Doughty then has made a loan move to Bromley, with the club’s official website confirming the move for the youngster.
The midfielder will be hoping to get some much needed minutes under his belt as he seeks to build on an already growing reputation within the game.
Non-league Bromley will offer him the chance of game time where he will be hoping to catch the eye of manager Bowyer, who himself is building a solid reputation in the game following last season’s promotion and now excellent start to Championship life.
Charlton already given Doughty his chance in the first-team this season with a start in the Carabao Cup, and they will be hoping that Bromley can further his development and provide the 19-year-old with the platform to showcase his skills in the coming weeks.
This is a solid enough move from Charlton and one that makes sense for both the player and the club.
There’s a definite talent in their with Doughty and if he can get some more first-team action under his belt and get used to playing week in and week out, then Charlton will have an excellent young footballer on their hands when he makes his way back to The Valley.
