Pratley makes it two
As expected, and I think in most corners, hoped Darren Pratley became Lee Bowyer’s second summer signing. The 33-year old midfield general played 35 times last season for Bolton in The Championship, where he was their captain.
Pratley posed in the new away shirt today at The Valley. He will be a good addition and an experienced leader and has played 458 appearances through his career, mostly at Swansea and Bolton.
Steve Gallen says they are working on one or two more signings, but as quick as they come in, another one falls. Today we were told that Igor Vetokele will be out for the start of the season after picking up a foot injury at Welling. An acute tear in the plantar fascia takes time to heel and I wouldn’t be surprised if he is out for a couple of months.
