Former Southampton and Luton boss Nathan Jones has been appointed the new manager of League One Charlton.
In 2020, he returned to Luton and guided them to a sixth-placed finish in the Championship during the 2021/22 season. The Hatters lost in the play-off semi-final, however Jones was named EFL Championship manager of the season.

Another flop with Southampton
Jones lost his first four Premier League games in charge of the Saints, and things didn't get much better after that.
After just fourteen games in charge, Jones was shown the door by Southampton - one of shortest managerial reigns in Premier League history.
Taking over at Charlton
Jones was appointed manager of League One Charlton on February 4, 2024.
He took over from Michael Appleton who was sacked last month after a run of 10 matches without a win in League One.
Jones arrived at the Valley with Charlton three points above the drop zone. They were beaten 1-0 by Derby in the last game before Jones became manager, which extended their winless league run to 12 games.
Jones, who coached the Charlton Under-21s in the 2012/13 season, told the club website: “I am extremely excited by the challenge in front of me at Charlton.
“It is a club that I have fond memories of from my time here and I want to play my part in moving the club forward.
“I have been approached by a number of clubs to get back into management, but I have been waiting for the right opportunity.
“From my conversations with the board and given the long-term nature of the contract, I can see there is a real appetite to build something here which I am really looking forward to being a part of.”
