Ghana’s Jojo Wollacot confirmed Charlton Athletic first choice goalkeeper

Charlton Athletic boss Ben Garner has confirmed Jojo Wollacot as the club first choice goalkeeper this season.

The Black Stars shot-stopper who joined the club this summer from Swindon Town proved his worth in the side’s victory over Queens Park Rangers in the Carabao Cup.

He saved a penalty during the shootouts after a 1-1 draw in regulation time to propel the side to victory.

According to Ben Garner, the Ghanaian goalkeeper has been handed the number one spot at the club having hinted at the possible departure of Craig MacGillivray.

“There’s always a chance for every player while the window’s open. Craig is at an age where he wants to play football. He’s an established League One goalkeeper and it’s a hard decision not to play him because he’s a very good goalkeeper.

“But Jojo’s come in, he’s been given the number one shirt and I just felt that he’s hit good form at the start of the season and wanted to keep that going and get him building those relationships with his defenders etc. He did really well again.

“But Craig’s a fantastic goalkeeper as well. At the moment, we’re very fortunate to have two really good goalkeepers plus young Nathan Harness backing that up as well.” He said.
