Addicks delight at Benson capture

Published Add your comment

Charlton have completed the signing of striker Paul Benson from Dagenham.

Addicks boss Phil Parkinson has been chasing the 30-year-old all summer and finally got his man after the clubs agreed an undisclosed fee.

"We're really pleased to get Paul," said Parkinson. "He's got a good goalscoring record over the years at Dagenham & Redbridge and he's also a hard-working frontman."

He added: "We've worked hard on the deal and it's taken a while, but that's understandable. Dagenham didn't want to lose him because he's played an important part in their recent history."
