What for? I really don't get wealthy people buying a random football club they seemingly have no connection with.

London Broncos got their best crowds at Charlton iirc.
IMG are keen on developing a SL side in London.
Leneghan was involved there.

1+1=2 ??

This news about Charlton because IL and his son are buying into the club. Maybe they are swapping major/minority shareholder roles with Danson.
After all IL has said about the Wigan RL club and how he feels about it I'd be surprised if he sold up completely.

As has been said, maybe there's a future link between Charlton and London Broncos. IL & family will know a lot more about IMG's plans than we do. Personally I can't see a London SL club succeeding without a far higher salary cap than clubs ion the North of England. Interesting to see how IMG tackle that problem.

There’s no chance he’s buying charlton on his own as well, somebody else has to be involved in the deal like danson perhaps. I’m really surprised he’s even interested
