Pictures of alleged letters sent to certain fans have surfaced on social media, although there has been no confirmation that they are authentic.

The club has drawn up a behavioural contract and have sent letters to fans - seemingly those who have criticised the club on social media last season - stating that their season ticket must be collected in person from the club's Duty Safety Officer Cliff Eager.

In the letter, Eager says: "I need to advise you that the granting of your season ticket will be conditional and subject to you signing an 'Agreed Behavioural Contract' which will request that you refrain from posting derogatory or inflammatory comments regarding the Club or people representing the club in the future on any social media website."

Charlton Atheltic were unavailable for comment when contacted by Independent.ie today.
