Inside Today's Palace Programme

15 October 2016

There is a treat in store for fans if they pick up their edition of the Palace Programme this afternoon when they head to Selhurst Park for the visit of West Ham United.

Skipper Scott Dann graces the front cover and he looks back on completing 100 matches for the Eagles last month, and speaks about his favourite moment, his best memories and what he hopes to achieve by the time he gets to 200:

“I would like to see the club in an even better position and see how far we can go. To get to the next level of playing in Europe is a big step, but if we keep on doing what we’re doing, then maybe in a couple of years’ time we can be there.

"Personally I would love to play for my country at some stage, so if I can keep playing well I might have a chance of that. It’s something I would love to do.

"I have been on the losing side in the cup final, and I have a League Cup winners medal having played every game until the final which I missed through injury. Both of those memories are bittersweet, so it would be nice, especially as captain, to get a piece of silverware, and there’s no reason we can’t do that.”

If one big name wasn't enough for you, then there's another in the Flashbacks section, with Dougie Freedman speaking to the programme for the first time since his time as manager four years ago.

The club legend looks back on his playing career in SE25 and recalls some magical moments, including scoring the only goal of the game to beat West Ham back in April 2004.

There is also an exclusive first interview with Jonathan Benteke who fills us in on what it was like replacing his brother Christian at Middlesbrough, and how his move to the Eagles during the summer came about.

Speaking of Christian, there is also a giant A2 poster of him celebrating scoring the equaliser at Everton last time out as part of the Junior Eagles postermag, which is filled with games and quizzes to keep our younger fans entertained right up until the teatime kick-off.

Joel Ward tackles your social media questions in #AskTheEagles, and Alan Pardew and Steve Parish also give their thoughts on recent weeks in their columns, plus there is all the usual news, views and features to get you through the weekend's action.

The Palace Programme costs just £3.50 and can be bought from sellers around the ground, the club shop or the programme room on Holmesdale Road.

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.
