Charlton Pay Tribute To Fan PC Keith Palmer Who Died In Westminster Terror Attack

Charlton have paid a touching tribute to season ticket holder PC Keith Palmer after he was killed in the London terror attack.

The lifelong Addicks fan died while trying to stop an armed terrorist from forcing his way into the Houses of Parliament at Westminster yesterday.

In a poignant and moving gesture, the League One club have led the tributes to Palmer by draping a scarf over his seat at The Valley.

PC Palmer was one of four people killed in the attack on the capital when he was fatally stabbed, with 40 others injured in the tragedy.

Charlton tweeted: “As an immediate tribute to hero Keith, a red and white scarf has been placed on the seat which he occupied for many years.”

A further club statement from Charlton said: “It is with great sadness that the club has learned of the tragic news of the death of PC Keith Palmer, a loyal Charlton supporter and season-ticket holder, who lost his life as a result of the terror incident in Westminster on Wednesday afternoon.

“Keith was a familiar face at The Valley to many supporters and sat in his same East Stand seat for many years.

“As an immediate tribute, a red and white scarf has been placed on his seat which will remain until the next home game on Tuesday, April 4th, while the club will discuss ways in which it can commemorate his life at the game itself.

“Keith was a true hero who will be greatly missed by all the Charlton family and everyone at the club would like to offer their sincere condolences to his family and friends at this extremely difficult time.

“The club also wish to extend condolences to the families of all those victims who were involved in yesterday’s incident.”
