The experience and knowhow of Darren Pratley was added to Charlton’s ranks following the midfielder’s release from Bolton Wanderers last summer.
The Addicks secured his services until the end of this season following his seven-year spell at the Macron Stadium where the former Trotters skipper made 203 appearances.
He had previously represented Swansea City whom he joined in 2006 and remained for five years, scoring 31 goals in 199 appearances and helping the Swans to promotion to the Championship in 2008 and the Premier League in 2011.
The midfielder’s senior career started at The Valley when he came off the bench for Fulham against Charlton for his debut in 2003 and he has since gone on to play just under 500 senior games.
Pratley provided much needed knowledge and experience to a young Addicks side both in training and on the pitch. scoring 4 times in 34 outings for Charlton last season, his biggest moment in a Charlton shirt last season was undoubtedly his extra time equaliser in the play-off semi-final in front of the Covered End.
