Charlton Athletic were formed on June 9.1905 by a group of mid-teens. A number of youth clubs in the South East London area merged together to form the club.

The club’s first Football League match was against Exeter City in August 1921 and in 1926 finished bottom of the Football League. In 1929 they won the Division Three championships and returned to the First Division in 1936.

In 1937 Charlton were runners-up in the First Division title race, finished fourth in 1938 and third in 1939. They reached the final of the FA Cup in 1946.

In 1984 the club was ruined financially and Charlton went to administration, getting reformed as Charlton Athletic (1984) Ltd. They gained promotion to the first division at the end of the 1985-1986 season.
