Biographical Text

Jonathan Fortune, mainly known for his time with Charlton Athletic, had a short late-season spell with Exeter City in 2012 during which he played five times. He then finished his Football League career by playing briefly for Barnet and Dagenham & Redbridge.   

Progressing through Charlton Athletic’s youth ranks, and in the wake of two loan spells at Mansfield Town, Jonathan made his Charlton début in the Premier League in August 2001 and went on to make nearly 200 appearances for the club. After two loan moves to Stoke in 2007, he left Charlton in 2009 to spend an unproductive, injury-hit season with Sheffield United before returning to the Valley. Rarely featuring for the first-team he left the club again in January 2012 and signed for Exeter City on 9 March 2012.

Jonathan’s Exeter career started with a defeat at MK Dons the following day and, in a team facing relegation, never really got off the ground. He appeared four times during March before departing the club.

After a promising start, Jonathan’s career had been hampered by injury and he played his final games in the Football League during the following season in the colours of Barnet followed by a single appearance for Dagenham and Redbridge. He then retired from playing and, since 2016, has been a football consultant with the Platinum One Group.
