Nathan Jones labels Charlton Athletic trialist best player he’s ever signed during his career

Charlton Athletic manager Nathan Jones deployed two trialists in the pre-season win at Dartford – including a striker he reckons is the best signing he’s made in his career.

Ex Ipswich Town midfielder Teddy Bishop played the first 45 minutes of the 6-1 win at Princes Park. He is now a free agent after talks to extend his contract at former club Lincoln City collapsed.

Forward Danny Hylton, 35, who scored 54 goals in 147 league appearances at Luton Town, featured for the last ten minutes, scoring Charlton’s sixth goal.

The Camden-born striker spent the last two seasons at Northampton Town and could link up again with the boss who brought him to Kenilworth Road in 2016.

Asked if he’ll be taking a closer look at the two players over the next few weeks, Jones said: “I’m having a look at Teddy Bishop. I know everything about Danny Hylton. I know what Danny Hylton can do. I don’t need to look at Danny Hylton. Danny Hylton is possibly my best ever signing in terms of everything.

“So, I’m not having a look at Danny Hylton. We’ve got a lot of young strikers at the football club and if they can have the application and certain things that Danny Hylton has then they’re going to have fantastic careers.

“We’ve got [Daniel] Kanu and if you look at TC (Tyreece Campbell) today up top. No one has really played him up top but that’s where we believe he’s at his best. If he can learn off good pros like Danny then they’re going to have fantastic careers.”
