Palace legends returning to Selhurst Park for Everton game

26 April 2019

We are delighted to be welcoming back several players from three very special promotion-winning squads to Selhurst Park on Saturday for the Everton game.

The ’69, ’79 & ’89 sides will forever have a place in the Eagles’ history, so be sure to watch the half time celebration of our former icons, as we look back on those magical seasons and the players recall some of their fondest memories such as the 51,000 crowd against Burnley, being 2-0 down to Fulham in the must-win game and just the five penalties awarded against Brighton!

The list of confirmed legends to return is as follows:

1968/69:

- David Payne

- John Jackson

- Mel Blyth

- Frank Parsons

- Tony Taylor

- Mark Lazarus

- Steve Kember

1978/79:

- David Swindlehurst

- Ian Walsh

- Jim Cannon

- Paul Hinshelwood

- Vince Hilaire

- Of course Steve Kember was part of this squad, too.

1988/89:

- David Madden

- Phil Barber

- Mark Bright

Player appearances subject to change.
