Club legend Darren Ambrose surprised a range of Crystal Palace fans using the club’s Virtual Matchday experience to watch the Manchester United game together, as the former midfielder dropped into their calls to meet and talk with supporters.
One of the groups Ambrose paid a virtual visit to was the CPFC San Francisco supporters’ club.
Famous for his 40-yard goal in the League Cup v United, Darren was the perfect man to talk to on the night.
