2014/15 In Review: May

16 June 2015

With the season done and dusted, takes a look back at the biggest stories, photos, video and tweets from 2014/15. Having secured safety in April, Palace finished the season with a flourish.

As the season entered the final straight, the Eagles found themselves at Stamford Bridge as the final hurdle on Chelsea's charge to the Premier League title, and an Eden Hazard goal gave the Blues a 1-0 win to seal their spot at the top of the table.

Congratulations to @ChelseaFC on winning the @premierleague title. Well deserved over the course of the season. Enjoy it!

That meant that the club had suffered three successive defeats, and another side to be on the wrong side of a result was the development squad who were knocked out of the U21 Professional Development League play-offs after extra-time at Selhurst against Huddersfield Town.

Another home loss occurred again against Manchester United but it didn't dampen the spirits as the club celebrated a successful season at their annual Awards Night, which saw Sullay Kaikai named Development Player of the Year, Mile Jedinak winning Goal of the Year and Scott Dann scooping the Player of the Year prize, plus the new home and away shirts were revealed.

Ahead of the trip to Liverpool Damien Delaney and Jason Puncheon signed new contracts and the squad travelled to Merseyside knowing that once again they were to be overlooked as Steven Gerrard made his final appearance at Anfield.

And with their final game of the season, Palace finally ended their long wait for a home win by beating Swansea City 1-0 and leapfrogging West Ham United and Everton into 10th place, their equally their second-highest ever finish in their history.

Two days later Julian Speroni, who signed a one-year contract extension the week before, celebrated his decade-long association with the club as Palace took on Dundee in his testimonial.
