Palace’s friendly against Bromley last night saw a goal glut for the Eagles, with Alan Pardew’s side putting on a show for those in attendance with a 6-0 victory.
After arriving on loan recently, Patrick Bamford grabbed the opportunity to impress with both hands, bagging a quick fire hat-trick to put the game out of the host’s reach after just 20 minutes, delighting the thousands of Palace fans who’d made their way to the game.
With the other goals coming through Sullay Kaikai, Dwight Gayle (obviously) and fan-favourite Wilfried Zaha, the players were able to coast in the closing stages of the game, as they ready themselves for a high-octane game at Carrow Road in just eight days time.
Of course, Bromley didn’t exactly provide stiff opposition for a squad full of Premier League regulars, but with fitness and game time pivotal to every player’s pre-season training regime, they will all have felt good for the experience, with the likes of Christian Scales and Luke Croll clearly over the moon to have played a big part in such a convincing win as they look to prove their worth to Alan Pardew before the weekly grind of the Premier League gets underway.
