Charlton Athletic have tied down 18-year-old midfielder Alex Stavrinou to a professional contract. Stavrinou, a Cyprus youth international, is highly-rated at The Valley where he has penned a one-year contract. He will now take his place in the Addicks' squad as they attempt to regain their Championship status. Stavrinou has captained both Charlton's Under-18s and reserve team sides. Charlton boss Phil Parkinson commented: "Stav's been a credit to himself and the way he's conducted himself in his hunger and desire to be a player. He deserved a contract."
