New deal for Daly

27 June 2019

Crystal Palace FC is delighted to have reached an agreement with development striker James Daly to extend his time with the club.

Daly, 19, has been at Palace since under-14 level and is pleased to extend his career in south London, saying: “I am delighted. I feel like it is good to get it all sorted and continue my development at the club and hopefully work my way up and get some minutes for the first team - that will be my aim.

“I feel like Crystal Palace is giving me the gateway to improve myself, test my game with the first team; they’re a club who do give youngsters a chance – you can see how well players like Aaron have done when given his chance, and hopefully the same thing can happen with me.”

The attacker, who made the bench for the first-team in the Premier League against Bournemouth in 2018, is looking forward to taking the experiences he gained out on loan with Kingstonian last season in the Isthmian League Premier Division into senior football at Palace. 

He said: “It was good to go out on loan to Kingstonian, to get that exposure to men’s football; I feel like it did benefit me going to a club where it’s a bit more physical and the demands of the game are tougher."
