Addicks miss out at PFA gong show
NO members of the Charlton squad were named in the 2012/13 Professional Footballers’ Association’s Championship Team of the Year.
Addicks boss Chris Powell and his assistant Alex Dyer were among those who attended Sunday’s annual event.
CHARLTON confirmed a finish in the top half of the Championship table by drawing 2-2 with Middlesbrough on Saturday.
The draw ended the Addicks’ ambitions of reaching the play-offs, but saw Chris Powell’s men extend their fine away form to seven games without defeat.
SUPPORTERS are being invited to assemble at The Valley on July 21 to attend the first of what are planned to be a series of ‘club days’.
Season ticket holders for 2013/14 will receive an exclusive invitation to the event, which will include the opportunity to watch manager Chris Powell carry out a training session with the club’s first-team squad and a range of fun events such as stadium tours and Q&A sessions.
CHARLTON announced last Friday the club is to forge a closer working relationship with the newly established Charlton Athletic Supporters’ Trust (CAS Trust).
The club intends to work collaboratively with the CAS Trust in a bid to promote fan engagement and more details on the trust can be found via castrust.org
FANS can cement their place in Charlton’s history and become part of the stadium itself by purchasing a granite stone as part of a new landmark at The Valley called Addicks Place.
The stones, which will be sited in front of the west-stand reception, can be personalised with a name or message, and supporters can choose from a range of sizes via addicksplace.co.uk
THE 2012/13 Charlton player of the year will be crowned at The Valley on Sunday night.
Voting has already taken place among supporters for the prestigious accolade, and the winner will be announced at the annual dinner organised by the Fans’ Forum at the stadium.
It will also be revealed which three players will this year enter the Charlton Athletic Hall of Fame, with Don Welsh, Harold Hobbis, Bert Johnson, Keith Peacock, Mike Flanagan, Stuart Leary, Mark Kinsella, John Humphrey and Richard Rufus bidding to join Sam Bartram, Derek Hales and Clive Mendonca.

DANNY Hollands started for Charlton on Saturday for the first time since October after Johnnie Jackson and Andy Hughes were ruled out due to hamstring injuries suffered against Wolverhampton Wanderers seven days earlier.
Hollands has since been on loan to Swindon Town, where he suffered a fractured foot.
Also back in the squad last weekend after injury was Danny Haynes, while Leo Cort (knee) has resumed training.
TONBRIDGE Angels will tomorrow night take on Charlton in the final of the Kent Senior Cup at Longmead Stadium (7.45pm).
Goals from Joe Pigott (2) and Harry Gerard gave the Addicks a 3-2 win against Thamesmead Town after extra-time on April 23 to set up the decider, which will see Charlton bidding to claim a third trophy after the U21s and U18s won their respective leagues.
FANS are reminded Charlton’s final match of 2012/13 against Bristol City on Saturday kicks off at the earlier time of 12.45pm.

CHARLTON’S U21s will be at home to either Huddersfield Town or Derby County in the national semi-finals of the Professional Development League 2.
Should the Addicks win the game, which has yet to be scheduled, they will face Leicester City or Cardiff City away from home in the final.
A £2,500 prize will be available at the final game of the season against Bristol City on Saturday courtesy of Valley Gold, and there is no better time to sign up to the scheme that supports the club’s youth academy.
