RECAP: CPFC Fanpark Screening v Brighton
— 2 Mar 2020, 15:00 by Daniel Dear
Crystal Palace fans celebrated in unison at BOXPARK Croydon this past weekend as their side claimed a vital three points in the Premier League against fierce rivals Brighton.
The win crucially puts the Eagles within touching distance of Premier League safety whilst the Seagulls of the south coast are kept well in the fight for survival.
Fans arrived early for the lunchtime kick-off, but they had to wait until the second half when they could celebrate the first goal and what turned out to be the winning strike by striker Jordan Ayew in the 70th minute; cue scenes of pandemonium!
Former Eagles player Darren Ambrose hosted the event alongside resident DJ and Palace fan Jay Knox. Ambrose was actually celebrating his ninth birthday, having been born on a leap day 36 years ago. He received a round of 'Happy Birthday' by the Palace fans.
The Crystals were also present to showcase their cheerleading skills, whilst mascot Pete the Eagle added to the entertainment.
Hope to see you at the next Palace fanpark. Until then, EEEEAGLES!
