Watch Tribute To Ron Noades On YouTube

15 May 2014

At last week's Awards Night, former chairman Ron Noades was posthumously awarded a special achievement award for his time at the club during its most decorated era.

Noades, who sadly died last December aged 76, owned the Eagles from 1981 to 1998 and helped the club establish itself among English football's elite by overseeing their run to the 1990 FA Cup final and lifting the Zenith Data Systems Cup the following year.

Three of the main protagonists in that era were Steve Coppell, Mark Bright and Ian Wright who gave glowing tributes to Noades on stage at the Fairfield Halls in Croydon, before a special presentation was made to his widow Novello by current chairman Steve Parish.

There was also a video shown detailing his 17 years in SE25, and you can watch it on YouTube now to celebrate his time at the Palace helm:
