Farewell, then, Darren Pratley

Darren Pratley has confirmed that he is leaving Charlton.

In a farewell message he said: 'I have loved every minute of it and proud to have worn the shirt over 100 times ... it really is a family club and those people behind the scenes are the heartbeat ... a big thank you to all the fans for cheering us on.'

The 36-year old is out of contract:

Ben Hayes commented: 'Pratley played his heart out every time he pulled on a Charlton shirt, a leader on and off the pitch. Also a much better player than a few fans realised. For the Donny semi-final and for coming on and changing the play-off final alone he deserves great credit.'

A number of fans have recalled his goal against Doncaster.

  1. Thanks to Darren Pratley from me. Always gave his all. It's probably the correct decision to release him though.
    I always thought he would be useful among the coaching staff. Perhaps we're fully stocked in that dept.
