Pre Season

Trio from first team's tour of Switzerland all start away at Corinthian Casuals

23 July 2019

The Crystal Palace U23s XI taking on Corinthian Casuals contains three players who joined the men’s first team on their pre-season tour of Switzerland, with Sam Woods, James Daly and Kian Flanagan all starting.

Richard Shaw brings in Ollie Webber in goal, replacing Dion Henry between the sticks after the latter played 90 minutes in Saturday’s narrow 1-0 defeat to Bromley.

Jacob Mensah starts in the heart of the defence, having played 27 minutes against Bromley, replacing Ryan Inniss.

Former club captain Jason Puncheon will be starting tonight’s game as the midfielder looks to keep up his fitness over pre-season whilst deciding on his next career move having left the south Londoners in May.

Manager Shaw sees the inclusion of the 33-year-old as a great opportunity for the developing Eagles to learn from someone with Jason's experience.

The full line-up and subs bench is below:

Palace: Webber, Russell, Mensah, Woods, Chamberlin-Gayle, Flanagan, Addy, Puncheon, Aveiro, Daly, Kadded.

Subs: M Boateng, Inniss, Henry, D Boateng, Pierrick, Hobbs, Olopade, Abrahams, Tanimowo, Agyaakwah
