Representing Crystal Palace FC
Crystal Palace have history in this competition having seen their representatives reach the Final last year, and Overton Grange come through a tough qualifying path to ensure The Eagles are represented at Wembley again this year.They began their journey to the Final by beating off competition from 35 other teams in Crystal Palace's local competition in January.They then won the eight-team South East Area Final held at Millwall in February, on penalities, to progress through to the Southern Regional Finals.
Hosted by Charlton Athletic earlier this month, the Southern Regional Finals saw teams representing Cardiff City, Peterborough United and Reading join Overton Grange to play for the prized opportunity of reaching Wembley with Crystal Palace's representatives emerging victorious to secure their national final place at Wembley.
