No-one has spanned the recent triumphs and tribulations of Charlton Athletic like Chris Solly.

The right-back has experienced a 101-point, 30-win League One title-winning season in 2011-12, successive 5-0, then 6-0 humiliations away from home in their dismal relegation campaign from the Championship, fan protests involving balls, pigs and crisp packets thrown on to The Valley pitch and this season a revival under Lee Bowyer that has them looking forward to next week’s League One play-offs.

Oh, and a fan song that describes him affectionately as 5ft 3in.

The 28-year-old will reach 300 appearances from the club at the start of next season and is currently enjoying his testimonial year, a rare feat in today’s game.

Solly is the final player to take our Sky Bet EFL Q&A in a season he hopes will go on until the final weekend of May.

A clear thinker about the game, he was once terrorised by the double wing threat of Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolasie in the same match and would like to have played behind David Beckham.
