WATCH: Players Kickabout At Junior Members’ Day

24 October 2018

Crystal Palace first-team players partook in an action-packed training session for Junior Members on Tuesday in Beckenham, with captain Luka Milivojević, Wayne Hennessey, Patrick van Aanholt, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Jason Puncheon, Mamadou Sakho and Cheikhou Kouyaté helping to coach the children.

Junior Members were offered the event during their half-term, with 50 places being snapped up by budding young footballers who were eager to show off their skills and develop their game.

They enjoyed five hours of fun that included expertly-led training sessions, a surprise visit from their Crystal Palace heroes and then a series of mini-matches to round off the afternoon.
