With the club's proud history it's always good to have the opportunity to welcome back and meet Palace players that have pulled on the red and blue shirt over the years and this weekend we are delighted to announce that former striker Leon McKenzie will be at the stadium.
Leon made 98 appearances for the club during his career and he has now put details of his time playing plus a battle that he faced off the field in his brand new autobiography, My Fight With Life.
McKenzie is fighting back just like the son of a boxer should. He is proof that football is not just a life of glamour and glory. It’s also a life full of stress and pressure. Leon went from the Premier League to prison with an attempt at suicide in between. But now he’s a free man again. Free from jail and free enough from his mental torment to start helping others with similar problems. It’s been a fascinating and emotional journey and every time Leon has been knocked down he’s come back stronger.
He will be introduced to the crowd at half-time of Saturday's match against Brighton and will then be in the club shop signing copies of the book between 5pm and 6pm after the match.
