Conor Washington has had a great start to his time at Charlton, the former Hearts striker scoring for the Addicks on his league debut.

Gary Bowyer’s side have dropped into League One this season but have started their campaign well. They secured a 2-0 win away to Crewe Alexandra on opening day.

In-demand Alfie Doughty scored the opener before Charlton’s ex-Jambo stepped up. It was a neat finish too, getting on the end of Adedeji Oshilaja’s header to volley past William Jaaskelainen.

Washington and Charlton face West Ham next in Carabao Cup competition.

During his sole season at Tynecastle, the Northern Irish international made 22 appearances, scoring four times. Injury did blight some of his spell in maroon as the Jambos slipped into the Championship.

He’s one of a host of players to have left Gorgie this summer as Robbie Neilson’s revamps the team for a push for the Scottish Championship title. They kick off their competitive campaign at home to Inverness in the League Cup on October 6.
