Jed Steer could be one of few men to have been promoted from League One to the Championship, and from the Championship to the Premiership in the same season.

The 26-year-old goalkeeper was on loan at Charlton from Aston Villa for the first half of the season and made 19 appearances in a successful stint between the sticks for The Addicks before being re-called to the west-midlands outfit.

On Tuesday night he starred for Dean Smith’s Villains as they overcome their rivals West Bromwich Albion via a penalty shoot-out to secure a spot in the ‘richest game in football,’ the Championship play-off final.

If both clubs were to get promoted the shot stopper would collect a winners medal for both clubs.

“I’m over the moon for Jed,” said Charlton manager Lee Bowyer.

“From not being in the team at the start of the season, he came to us, worked hard every day and Andy Marshall (goalkeeping coach) improved him.

“His professionalism was outstanding.

“I believe that you get rewarded for hard work.

“We were disappointed to lose him because we were in a good place with him in the side, but for him to go back to Villa, save two penalties and to be in the finals, it’s great for him and I’m delighted and wish him the best.”

Charlton recruited Chris Maxwell as Steer’s replacement in January but the on-loan Preston man hasn’t been able to dislodge 22-year-old Academy product Dillon Phillips from the number one jersey who took his opportunity in the short period when he was the only recognised keeper on the books.

“He’s taken his chance and earned to stay in there and deserves all the credit he gets as he’s been outstanding for us,” Bowyer added.
