Hi all,
Can anyone tell me is this brown spot or blight? on my Charlotte's
I have Maris pipers planted in the same bed and they are unaffected.
I sprayed today against blight to be on the safe side and hope it will slow whatever it is down, what problems am i likely to get later on?
I am a complete novice as you can tell and new to the forum.

no this is definitely not blight, more like sun spot scold. Of no significance. for blight look at the underside of the leaf for white/grey mould. Expect blight in the next few days.

Thanks Michael, i had researched it online and was 95% that it wasn't blight but it's great to hear it from an expert.
I was wondering do the charlotte's get flowers on them? as mine have none to date. i am a first time potato grower, it's all a learning curve
