Harry Lennon Signs!

22 June 2018

We are delighted to announce the signing of Harry Lennon on a three-year deal from Charlton Athletic for a nominal fee.

The 23-year-old, who graduated from the Addicks youth system, made six starts and 12 appearances in total for Charlton last season. 

The defender has already tasted League One football on two separate loan spells which took place at Gillingham, firstly at the end of 2014 and then again in 2015 when he made eight appearances. He was recalled to South London and played 19 times in the Championship, scoring in draws against Bristol City and Blackburn Rovers. 

After completing his three-year move to Blues, Lennon spoke to iFollow Blues and said:  

"I'm really happy to be signing, it's all happened really quickly to be fair, if I'm honest I'm just looking forward to getting started, meeting the lads and getting settled in." 

The defender previously played under Chris Powell when he was at Charlton and the Blues manager was the man to get his career underway after gifting him his debut back in January 2014.

"It's been about four years since I was given my debut and I've not seen Chris in a while but he's a good manager and is very respected in the game.

"He was the one that spoke to me and it was a big reason why I wanted to join and I can't wait to be working under him again."

Powell was delighted to have added Lennon to his squad and the boss believes that he can bring a huge amount of talent to the back-line.

"I'm really pleased to bring Lennon to the club, I've kept my eye on him for a number of years and he has the attributes and attitude to be a top player.

"He will give us good competition in the centre back area, he has pace, he is left-footed and can handle the ball well which will give us balance in defense."
