Former Charlton ace Madelene Wright admits 'mistakes' after being filmed 'inhaling from balloon'December 14, 2020
AN EX-CHARLTON Women’s ace who was apparently videoed inhaling from a balloon has posted a message on social media about her 'mistakes'.
Footage of Madelene Wright at a friend’s gathering appeared on Snapchat in November and was later revealed by the Daily Star.
And in a different clip the former Women’s Championship player was captured on camera drinking from a champagne bottle behind the wheel of a Range Rover.
Following the incident, Charlton Athletic later confirmed Wright’s registration had been cancelled and she would no longer play for the club.
The former Millwall full-back, 22, has since taken to social media to reflect on events.
In an Instagram post, Madelene wrote: “Mistakes have the power to turn you into something better than you were before.”
Wright, who was pictured holding a new pair of trainers aloft in the upbeat post, expressed her gratitude to Hashtag FC footballer Stef Paci for the footwear.
Following the episode, Charlton told SunSport: “The club would like to make clear that although the behaviour is not acceptable, the player’s welfare remains important to us.
“She will still have access to the club's support channels if needed."

And road safety charity Brake warned of the potential risks of attempting to drive under the influence of alcohol.
Brake told SunSport: “Driving and alcohol simply do not mix.
“When you’re behind the wheel you’re in charge of a potentially lethal weapon which requires full concentration and zero impairment to do so safely.”
