Yesterday, Mark Bright met fans and signed copies of his newly released autobiography 'My Story' at an event in the Club Shop in The Glades shopping centre, Bromley.
Bright was on hand in the recently opened store where fans queued to meet the Palace icon at a busy event filled with Eagles young and old.
Brighty gave an excellent interview on Palace TV recently where he discussed his journey to becoming a professional. Looking back in his role as Head of Under-23 Development, he reflected on taking to the pitches as a youngster without a mother or father there to will him on. He said:
"I come and watch the [Palace] kids play on Saturday mornings or Sundays sometimes and you see all the parents on the side cheering them on; I never had that. Never had it. Nobody came to cheer me on. That parental guidance, that pride they feel in you doing something, achieving something, it’s all missing."
There are loads of great stories in Bright's book and some eye-opening accounts from the forward's life. You can grab a copy online by clicking here or you can buy one in person at our stores in Bromley, Croydon and Selhurst!
