Former West Ham United and Norwich defender Elliott Ward is on trial at Charlton Athletic – and plays in today’s pre-season friendly at Welling United.

Caretaker boss Lee Bowyer will play two different sides in each of the 45 minutes.
Charlton (first-half team): Maynard-Brewer, Marshall, Bauer, Sarr, Page, Dawkins, Aribo, Maloney, Grant, Magennis, Ajose.
Charlton (second-half team): Phillips, Solly, Ward, Pearce, Blumberg, Morgan, Lapslie, Forster-Caskey, Taylor, Vetokele, Fosu.
