Palace v Villa: The Programme

12 April 2014

Crystal Palace have the chance to overtake Aston Villa this afternoon as the two sides clash at Selhurst Park – and what better way to warm-up for the big game than by picking up a copy of the Palace Programme. 

Last weekend’s two-goal hero Jason Puncheon is the main interview today, as the Croydon-born winger reveals it would be a “career highlight” if he can help keep his boyhood club in the Premier League this season.

Today’s game kicks off at the later time of 3.07pm in memory of the 96 supporters who lost their lives in the Hillsborough disaster – and Liverpudlian Scott Dann discusses the impact the tragedy has had on his home city over the past 25 years. 

Palace’s official club photographer Neil Everitt is also in reflective mood in ‘Meet The Selhurst Staff’, as he looks back on his four decades snapping the Eagles. 

Joe Ledley was the subject of plenty of photos last weekend after he scored against his former club Cardiff, and in today’s edition of the Palace Programme, the Welsh midfielder recalls his ‘Footballing Firsts’, while his international teammate, Wayne Hennessey, picks his ‘Dream XI’. 

Former Eagles hero Mark Bright returns with the latest edition of his regular column, which examines exactly how well Palace did to beat Chelsea in our last home game at Selhurst Park. 

There’s another blast from the past in ‘Where Are They Now?’ as Chris Waters tells the fortunes of academy graduate Ryan Hall, while club historian Ian King looks back at a host of personnel who have represented both Palace and Aston Villa down the years. 

With our regular columns from Tony Pulis, Mile Jedinak, Steve Parish and Kevin Day to look forward to, plus our usual 11-page look at today’s opponents, there is plenty to get your teeth into ahead of today’s big match!
