Charlton midfielder back for Preston trip
AFTER three matches on the sidelines following his dismissal in the 1-0 win at Oldham on Easter Saturday, Charlton midfielder Danny Hollands is available for selection again for Saturday’s trip to Preston North End.
Hollands, an ever-present before his disputed dismissal, has missed the games in which the club clinched promotion and won the league title.
The Addicks have now extended their record highest number of points to 97 and league wins to 29.
FOUR Charlton players - Ben Hamer, Rhoys Wiggins, Michael Morrison and Johnnie Jackson - were named in the Professional Footballers’ Association’s League One Team of the Year on Sunday night.
It was the first time so many Addicks had been selected since the 1999/2000 season, when current manager Chris Powell was among five players chosen.
SEASON tickets for Charlton’s return to the Championship are now back on sale, with most adult prices increased by £50 on pre-Easter rates.
The club kept its promise to the 9,200 who committed early to raise prices, but adult seats remain available from £290, with over 60s and U21s from £200 and U18s £99.
All U11s stay at £49.
Seasonal hospitality prices for 2012/13 have risen by 10 percent compared to the renewal rate available before April 5.

CHARLTON chairman Michael Slater raised more than £22,000 for Demelza Care for Children by completing Sunday’s Virgin London Marathon in a personal best four hours, 10 minutes and 30 seconds.
The Addicks raised further funds for the charity, which has hospices in Eltham and Sittingbourne, by dedicating Saturday’s game to Demelza.
IN excess of 1,500 tickets had been sold on Monday for Saturday’s match against Preston at Deepdale (3pm), and places will be on sale from The Valley until 4pm tomorrow (Thursday).

THE winner of Charlton’s 2011/12 player of the year award will be named on May 6.
Fans have been voting around the ground at the last two home games and the winner will be crowned at the annual end-of-season supporters’ dinner.
Fans have also been selecting players for a new Addicks Hall of Fame - see cafc.co.uk for details.
ALL tickets for Charlton’s final match of 2011/12, which will see the presentation of the League One trophy, are sold out in in home areas, apart from a handful of isolated single seats in the family stand, which is only available to adults accompanied by an U18.
The club will continue to refund and resell any matchday ticket returns for the Hartlepool United game on May 5 and is keeping a waiting list of fans.

RIGHT-back Chris Solly last week learned he had not made the latest shortlist for the Great Britain Olympics football team after coach Stuart Pearce cut his original long list for the U23 competition down to 80 names.
THE title hopes of Charlton’s U18s were ended on Saturday when they were beaten 4-1 by Leicester City in their final league match.
Joe Pigott netted a consolation as the Addicks were unable to gain the victory they needed to keep their title dreams alive.
A LIMITED number of places for the Valley Casino matchday hospitality package at the final match of the season against Hartlepool - which includes a west stand seat, a Buck’s Fizz and canapé reception, a two-course meal and access to the casino gaming tables from midday until 2.30pm, all for £100 per person - remain available.

Meanwhile, the club is producing a special 100-page matchday programme, priced £5, to mark the championship season at the last game against Hartlepool United.
TELEVISION and radio presenter Dave Berry has agreed to become the youth services ambassador of the Charlton Community Trust.
The Addicks fan will be supporting the new youth services programme in a hope of appealing to younger generations to get more active and involved with different programmes running in the Royal Borough of Greenwich.
