A Crystal Palace XI won 3-0 against Dulwich Hamlet at Champion Hill.
Palace fielded trialist goalkeeper Peter Kurucz, 23, who recently had his contract terminated at West Ham by mutual consent.
The former Hungary international was a regular in the Hammers reserves but suffered a serious knee injury that ruled him out of the 2010/11 season.
And Kurucz made a fine start to impressing the Palace coaching staff by saving a penalty from Dulwich's Carl Wilson-Dennis after ex-Hamlet defender Michael Chambers hauled down Kevin James in the box.
The scores remained goalless at half-time, but Academy youngster Kieran Woodley fired Palace in front on 51 minutes following a swift counter-attack.
Highlight of the evening was seeing Dougie Freedman entering the fray as a second half substitute and his delightful chipped pass to Reise Allassani almost saw him score.
Eagles defender Quade Taylor made it 2-0 in the 78th minute by nodding home Jerome Williams' corner against his former club.
Freedman set up Allassani for a third goal seven minutes from time and was denied a goal himself in the closing stages after his effort struck a post.
Afterwards Allassani Tweeted: "Won 3-0 for the reserves. Scored 1 and played well :D #buzzing"
Taylor added: "Just got home from the game won 3-0 against my old club got a goal as well! #Buzzing support was class! As well #cpfc"
