FORMER Wanderers loanee Marcus Maddison has announced he is launching his own gaming channel.

The Charlton Athletic winger, who cut short his time with the club earlier this month after struggling to be away from his family, announced via social media that he was launching a new venture from Wednesday.

“People have said to do what makes you happy and gaming has always been a huge passion of mine,” he wrote. “It is something I have looked into previously and now I am really gunna (sic) go for it.

“So tomorrow @officialmadgamer will be going live on Twitch from 7pm on what could be Verdansk (Call of Duty)’s last day.

“I would really appreciate if you guys could join me, like the channel and subscribe for all future content.

“My schedule is up for anyone who wants to check it out. So let’s play some games, have a laugh and enjoy life.”

Maddison said he was reviewing his career in football after leaving Bolton and the former Peterborough United man will be a free agent in the summer.

Talking in the matchday programme, Ian Evatt said he would like to see Maddison happy again.

“Marcus showed great strength in acknowledging that he needed support with his mental health and it goes without saying that myself and the club will continue to be there for him.

“Football takes a backseat when it comes to personal health and I wish him well and hope he can get himself back in the right place.”
