Eight Development Players Released

6 May 2016

Crystal Palace have released eight players from their development side including Christian Scales, Connor Dymond and Andreas Breimyr.

Also leaving the Eagles this summer are Reise Allassani, David Gregory, Spencer Forte, Matthew George and Will Hoare.

Scales played for the first-team during pre-season last summer after impressing following a short trial at the club in 2014/15, was included on the tour of South Africa before spending the first half of this campaign on loan at Crawley Town.

Dymond was named on Alan Pardew's bench for their Premier League clash against Watford in September and also spent time on loan at Newport County this season, whereas Allassani and Gregory played for Bromley and Eastbourne Borough this campaign respectively on temporary deals.

Breimyr arrived in SE25 last summer from Norwegian side Bryne FK, and the other three have all come through the club's academy with Hoare offered a trial at Newcastle United back in January.

Development boss Gary Issott said: "It's always hard at this time of the season to decide who will remain with the club and who will depart, but despite these lads leaving us we will continue to help them find other clubs throughout the summer.

"They have all worked extremely hard and been professional during their time at Crystal Palace and it's been a pleasure working with them.

"I'm confident that some of them can carve out decent careers elsewhere in the Football League and I look forward to keeping tabs on how they continue to develop in the coming years."
