Kinsella relishing Charlton trip

19 January 2018

Right-back Liam Kinsella is relishing the prospect of playing at the ground where his father Mark made his name.

Republic of Ireland Under-21 international Liam has featured regularly this term and will be hoping to retain his starting place when the Saddlers visit Charlton tomorrow.

His dad Mark earned legendary status during six years at The Valley, making over 200 appearances and twice captaining the Addicks to promotion to the Premier League.

Having watched his dad there as a youngster, Liam is looking forward to stepping out at The Valley himself for the first time as a player.

“I grew up watching Charlton and watching my dad play,” said the 21-year-old, who signed a contract extension earlier this week.

“I was only young then so I don’t remember much. My dad does talk about his time there quite a lot and has showed me videos of him scoring a few goals at The Valley.

“It’ll be my first time back at The Valley as a player and I’m looking forward to it.

“They’re a massive club and shouldn’t be in the league they are. They’re in a play-off spot at the moment and doing really well.

“But we know what we’re capable of and hopefully we can go there and get three points.”
