Charlton Athletic have confirmed that they have have completed a deal to sign former Portsmouth goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray.
The goalkeeper had previously been on the books with League One rivals Portsmouth, but has signed a two-year deal with the Addicks this summer, with his contract at Fratton Park reaching a conclusion this month.
Speaking in an interview with Charlton’s official website, MacGillivray admitted that he was drawn to the club due to their stature.
“I’m over the moon. As soon as I heard Charlton were interested, there were other opportunities that arose but I knew wanted to come to this football club. You just have to look at the size of it, its history, that ticked all the boxes for me.”

Plenty of Charlton Athletic supporters took to social media to issue their thoughts on MacGillivray’s arrival at The Valley ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.
