Rooks wing king Nanetti on trial at Charlton Athletic

Lewes FC’s exciting young wing sensation Christian Nanetti is today starting a trial period at Charlton Athletic.

Rooks boss Steve King confirmed that the Italian-born talent was being looked at by the npower League One leaders and that the Addicks boss Chris Powell had seen Nanetti play for the Rooks in the games at Tooting & Mitcham and Kingstonian.

Speakihg after the Rooks’ 2-1 win over Canvey Island on Saturday, King said: “He’s going to Charlton on Monday.

“Chris Powell’s come and watched him twice and they’ve invited him in on Monday, so we’ll see how what happens.”

Asked by Sport Expresss whether the development was a trial or something more permanent, King confirmed: “It’s a trial. If they don’t sign him, he comes back. But if they sign him they sign him, simple as that.”

Speaking about the 1-0 defeat at Kingstonian, where Powell was watching, King said: “As a team we didn’t play well but as an individual he did well, and that’s what they’re looking at.”
