    Palace are in the darker shirts. The Palace player featured in the opening shot was my grandfather: Percy Cherrett. He played centre forward for Palace between 1925-27 and was their top goal scorer during his two seasons with the team. There is a brief entry detailing his full football career on Wikipedia.
