Northampton Town signed the former Aldershot Town defender Anthony Charles on a contract to the end of the season in March 2012. The centre back originally signed for Aldershot Town in July 2002 from Hayes. He played a major part in winning the 2002-03 Ryman League Premier Division title before being loaned to Lewes in September 2003. The following month he signed on a permanent basis for Farnborough Town. He returned to Aldershot on a three-month loan agreement from Barnet in in February 2007 and performed well enough to secure a permanent move that summer. During the 2007-008 season, he was part of the Shots side that was defeated by Ebbsfleet United in the FA Trophy Semi-Finals and that won the Blue Square Premier title. He was also named in the Blue Square Premier 'Team of the Year'. In the summer of 2008, Anthony signed a new two-year contract before playing in Aldershot Town's first-ever Football League game against Accrington Stanley on the opening day of the 2008-09 season; he scored his first-ever Football League goal at Notts County in September 2008 and finished the campaign having won both the supporters' and players' 'Player of the Year' awards. He took over the captain's armband following the departure of Adam Hinshelwood in January 2010, after which he was an integral part of the side that over-achieved and made the play-offs before suffering the heartbreak of defeat to Rotherham United in the semi-finals. The 2010-11 season saw Anthony miss just five league games, he made his 200th appearance for the Shots against Crewe and played his 150th Football League game against Bury. He also made the 350th appearance of his senior career against Bradford City. He was injured on the final day of the 2010-11 season, but recovered to sign a deal at Sixfields. He signed a new deal in May 2012.
