60 years ago today, my dad had been posted abroad and we were set to join him so my grandad took me on a rollercoaster for the first time. It was Crystal Palace v York City, 1-0 Palace win. Canít remember much about the game but we sat in the stand towards Whitehorse end. I have just been able to acquire the programme, seems it was a win that got us promotion from Division 4.
I have remained on that rollercoaster ever since and whatever happens will never get off!

Lucky my Dad or Grandad didn't ever take me to see their team play otherwise I would have ended up a Charlton fan

Didn't we beat Posh 5-2 that season? I thing we lost 1-4 at theirs.

Average gate of 18,000+ that year. A record for the lowest league that I can't see being broken. (Unless they let the Glasgow pair in the league).

 


My dad made me a Palace fan. Never forgiven him.

36,000 when we played Peterborough.

I wouldn't speak to them

 


I used to put the manager's name in front of Red and Blue but got fed up with changing it. If someone cool becomes our manager then maybe..

Red and Blue Army!
