Training Every Wednesday

Hey Guys,

Training as always on Wednesday.

As mentioned previously it’s important we have a good turn out from both teams. Priority for squad selection will be given to players who come to training. The Cup/League etc starts this weekend for Palace and in two weeks time for City (note City friendly against Chinese semi-pro side this Saturday – will be in touch shortly regarding this). To make you sure you can make one of the teams please come to training (old and new players:no free passes).

The one and only FA qualified Benoit Wu will be taking care of this week’s session – expect good footy and cold beers later on.

Bring it.
Philippe
