Inside Your New Matchday Programme

13 August 2016


It's that time of the year already - our first home game of the Premier League season gets underway today against West Bromwich Albion, and for the new campaign there's a new-look Palace Programme for you to enjoy.

Gracing the first cover of the season is new boy Andros Townsend who gives his first in-depth interview as an Eagle as he reflects on his career so far, and speaks about why Selhurst Park hasn't been a happy hunting ground for him in the past:

“I don’t think I’ve had too many great memories of playing there! I remember playing for Ipswich and I got sent-off for a high foot on Julian Speroni; I haven’t apologised to him yet! I also played there for Spurs in Alan Pardew’s first game and didn’t have the best of games as we lost 2-1.

“I haven’t had the best experiences at Selhurst but I know how passionate the fans can be and if the club is doing well how loudly they back them, and now that I’m on the other side of it I’m sure I can have many special moments here.”

As well as giving the programme a bit of a facelift over the summer, we secured the signings of national journalists Dominic Fifield and Louise Court who will be regular contributors throughout the campaign.

There are also some great new features which allows you to get involved with the publication, including "My First Game" where a member of the Selhurst faithful talks us through their first ever matchday, and #AskTheEagles where you pose questions via Twitter to the squad - with Martin Kelly tackling the first batch.

However all your favourites have made the cut again this year, and the popular Flashbacks section continues with this edition looking back on a 4-1 success over the Baggies back in 1987, and we speak to Neil Redfearn who scored one of the goals that evening, and speaking of great goals we have a new feature titled Selhurst Stunners which looks back at some of the best strikes ever seen in SE25, but not scored by the Eagles!

There are the usual contributions from Alan Pardew, Scott Dann and Steve Parish who look ahead to the new campaign, and we also hear from youngsters Sullay Kaikai and Luke Dreher who impressed for the first-team during pre-season.

As well as all of this, there is also a free fixtures poster on the reverse of the Junior Eagles poster magazine, allowing you to easily keep track of who the Eagles will be facing this season.

The price for the 88 page edition remains the same as the past three seasons at £3.50, and it can be purchased around the ground from the various sellers, the programme shop on Holmesdale Road or the club shop.

If you can't make it to the game, then you can still get stuck into all this by downloading the digital version to your iPad or Android device for just £1.49.
