On a foul evening with driving rain for most of the game a strong Palace side including three Internationals, were far too strong for a game Dulwich side. Impressive strikes from Meyer, Kai Kai, Daly, Wickham and Puncheon were enjoyed by both sets of fans who were huddled under cover behind the goals or in the main stand. The most important aspect of the night was of course the fundraising for the ongoing battle with the property developer ground owners, but from a Palace perspective it was the appearance of a sharp looking Connor Wickham, almost two years since his horrible injury at Swansea. All Palace fans are hoping he might be the answer to our current goalscoring issues.
I must make mention of the excellent Lebanese kitchen that served me sone very tasty patties. The Wall of this parish was also in attendance with Palace supporting grandson.
