End Of The Road

A few weeks ago I was unfortunately given the news that all apprentices dread come the end of the two year scholarship. In a meeting with Gary Issott and Dougie Freedman I was told I would not be offered a professional contract at Crystal Palace.

Unforgettable

It’s been a few weeks since I have last blogged and in that time there have been some memorable performances and some not. After we knocked out Cardiff in round three of the FA Youth Cup, we received a mouth watering tie away at Liverpool. The excitement and the buzz amongst the boys was electric in the build up to the game.

Youth Cup Joy

The FA Youth Cup is the pinnacle for most young players in the country. We were looking forward to it for some time and couldn’t have gone into the game much better after beating Arsenal 4-1.

Team Spirit

Its coming to a really crucial stage in the season now and the next few results will have a big say in the direction our season goes. Last season the results around Christmas time were really positive and had a good impact on the rest of our season; we won our FA Youth Cup game and went in to the Christmas break on a high.

Winning Streak

Since my last blog things have been going really well for us and we have done really well to keep up our winning streak. There is no better feeling than winning and the confidence and belief it brings to the squad is huge.

Up And Down

In the space of a week, the feelings after our first two league games couldn’t be more different. After a fantastic win away to Leeds in our first game, we let ourselves down at home to Barnsley on Saturday.

Pre-Season

Welcome back to my first blog of the 2010-2011 season.

No footballers enjoy pre-season and I am no different! It’s a test both physically and mentally, as you have to be tough enough to push yourself and get as fit as possible.

Proud To Be A Palace Fan

To say I was a bit surprised at playing in the Reserve game against Crawley last week is a bit of an understatement. We report in for training at 8.45am every day, and we came in no different on Thursday.
