Palace submit 25-man squad and confirm shirt numbers - including Butland's

20 October 2020

Crystal Palace have submitted their full, 25-man squad for the 2020/21 Premier League season.

The club can list a maximum of 25 players over the age of 21 and can use as many under-21s as desired. Tyrick Mitchell (21) and Nathan Ferguson (20), for example, do not need to be named.

Making the squad, newly signed goalkeeper Jack Butland takes the No.1 shirt - the first shot stopper to do so since Julian Speroni.

What are the rules on homegrown players?

In their 25-man squad, Premier League clubs must not include more than 17 non-'homegrown' players.

What does 'homegrown' mean for Palace?

Homegrown players must have spent at least three seasons training at a professional English or Welsh club before the age of 21. Clubs can use any number of under-21s in their squad, regardless of nationality, without affecting their 25-man total.

Palace have 10 non-homegrown players in their 25-man squad.
