Conor Washington explains his end of season aims at Charlton Athletic



Conor Washington is one of very few Charlton Athletic players who can hold their head high after a very disappointing season at The Valley.

12th is as high a finish as the Addicks can possibly achieve heading into the final two fixtures, Shrewsbury Town at home and Ipswich Town away, with many looking ahead to 2022/23.

Washington netted his 11th of the season in a 2-0 win at Cambridge United on Tuesday evening, and the Northern Ireland international is out of contract in South London this summer.

The 29-year-old explained his aims for the final two fixtures when he spoke to CharltonTV.

He said: “Goals, I want more goals, obviously that’s me equal with last year now, nice to get into and over double figures again, but there’s been plenty of chances where I should’ve scored more, so a couple of goals, two or three more would be nice, get myself as high up the scoring charts as possible.

“Two wins, we need the two wins, to carry it on into next season I think.

“The turnaround is so short this year with the World Cup being in the winter, it’s not going to be long between the season finishing and starting up again.

“We want to give the fans something to cheer about in the last couple of games, although it’s obviously going to be difficult (given their underperformance this season).”

The Addicks cannot afford to hang around and feed off of scraps late on in the summer transfer window again this time around, or another mid table finish will be on the cards.

The Verdict

Quiz: What club do these 25 players from the Charlton Athletic 2016/17 squad play for now?

1 of 25

1. Ezri Konsa

Charlton have only lost one game under Johnnie Jackson when both Conor Washington and Jayden Stockley have started up front together.

The duo will be hoping to continue that partnership heading into next season, but first it is important that an agreement is come to around Washington’s expiring contract.

The 29-year-old’s application and commitment over the last two seasons should see him earn a second two-year deal at the club, with another striker certainly on the shopping list to join Washington, Stockley and Chuks Aneke at the top of the pitch next season.

Washington offers a lot off the ball with his physical presence and channel running and should be offered fresh terms in the near future.
