MIDFIELDER Ruben Bover Izquierdo has joined the New York Red Bulls after being released by Charlton.

The Spanish winger made two appearances for the club after signing in summer 2011 and will link up with former Addicks winger Lloyd Sam and the likes of Thierry Henry.

FANS can secure five Charlton matchday tickets for the price of four by purchasing a Super5 booklet, which are priced £80 and £110 and are available online via cafc.co.uk, covering any of the remaining home games of the campaign (excluding the Millwall match).

Full terms and conditions are available on 0871 226 1905.

ANDY Hughes put on a Charlton shirt for the first time in more than nine months last Tuesday as a reserve friendly against Millwall ended 0-0 at Sparrows Lane.

Hughes has been hampered by an Achilles injury that required two operations.

Charlton’s U21s are next in action on Monday against Cardiff City at Sparrows Lane, when Hughes could feature again as an overage player.

WITH 21 fewer opportunities to book to play on the Valley pitch this summer, fans are being urged to reserve their place as soon as possible.

Slots are available from £1,750 (plus VAT) from May 6-26, with benefits including the use of the home and away changing rooms and dugouts, the use of the lower west stand for up to 500 spectators, and three official match footballs.
