The Crystal Palace Business Club returns in November with a speaker who has played an influential role in the careers of Wilfried Zaha, Tyrick Mitchell, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and many more: Academy Director Gary Issott.
An integral part of the Academy’s work developing footballers for more than 15 years, Issott has played a major part in Palace Academy's transition towards the top-class, Category 1 status set-up it possesses today.
Indeed, under Issott’s stewardship, Palace's Academy has become the envy of many a youth set-up acros sthe country, with over 40 Academy graduates collectively making well over 1,000 senior appearances for the club. Countless others have made the grade elsewhere too.
Business Club guests will have the opportunity to put their questions to Gary, who will discuss his extensive background in youth development, his anecdotes of working with Palace's stars of the future, and his experience of maximising the potential of top-tier talent.
Issott will address guests at Selhurst Park from 11:30 to 16:00 BST on Thursday, 30th November.
Tables of 10 cost £600+VAT, or guests can pay £65+VAT per head; both prices include a three-course meal, wine, and an optional, complimentary private stadium tour.
Earlier this year, Business Club guests were invited to hear from boxing trainer Adam Booth and former Palace Head of Player Care Danny Young. Former guests also include Wales goalscorer Hal Robson-Kanu, Chairman Steve Parish, journalist Neil Ashton and BOXPARK CEO Richard Wade.
