We are absolutely delighted to announce we have teamed up with The Eagles Beak to sponsor two Crystal Palace Ladies players for the 2018/19 season.
There has been some nonsense reported about the Ladies team this week which thankfully has been rebuked quickly by the club and we absolutely jumped at the chance to support them when given the opportunity to get involved with sponsorship.
And so was Wilf Zaha, who donated a significant amount to the team this week after the erroneous reporting on player sponsorship and fees.
The two players we have sponsored are both new to Palace Ladies this season but could end up being very important members of the squad as the team prepare for life in the newly formed Women's Championship, the second tier of the game below the FA Women's Super League, and the highest level the club has ever played at.
Midfielder Jade Keogh (right above) and striker Kallie Balfour both arrived from Gillingham in the summer, where Balfour was the Gills' top scorer last season and have hit the ground running, featuring in both of Palace's victorious cup games so far this season with wins over Tottenham and Yeovil.

After those two cup wins, Palace Ladies kick off their league season this Sunday with a home game against Leicester at 2pm, where Jake and Kallie will be hoping to keep that decent early season form going.
Palace play their home games at Bromley FC's Hayes Lane ground every Sunday where admission is £5 for adults, £2.50 for CPFC members and season ticket holders (who bring their cards) with U16s getting in free.
We're super excited to be part of the Palace Ladies family for this season and wish them all the best for a successful campaign.
