Methven is one of seven Charlton shareholders who own more than 5% of the club, which was acquired by Global Football Partners’ UK subsidiary SE7 Partners in July 2023. After his radio rant, The Guardian reported that West Ham’s vice-chair, Karren Brady, had received an apology from Charlton’s co-owner for his comments.

LondonWorld has contacted Charlton Athletic for comment.

“I’m really pleased to be at Charlton,” Brayne remarked. “The football club has a fantastic, rich history of developing young players, which I’ve had success with at Birmingham City.” I’d like to continue that here.

“So far, my talks with Andy Scott, Nathan Jones, and the entire staff have been quite encouraging. Everyone has been really welcoming, and everyone understands the importance of the role – helping individual players improve, the team improve, and, eventually, everyone progress. That is what I am here to do, and I am eager to get started.”

Technical director Andy Scott stated, “James has worked with some elite players at Birmingham City, who have had a number of players come through their academy and into their first-team.” They’re well-known for it, so we’re excited to bring him in and acquire his services. He fits right in with Nathan’s plans for the first team.

“We have a lot of players who have progressed from the academy to the men’s first team, and we want to ensure that the individual development programmes that they are currently undergoing in the academy are continued and cemented so that they can improve in the areas that they need to work on.

“James will serve as an important link between the academy and the men’s first squad. He will work directly with individual and small groups of players from the U18s, U21s, and first team. His goal is to ensure that the players receive the necessary development, rather than simply bringing them into the first squad and expecting them to be the finished item.”
