That is a great pic - start of 76-77 season it must be.

I love the 'generic green' jerseys that Burns & Hammond are wearing. One of them used to wear a green one with a black collar - I managed to get exactly the same from a sports shop somewhere - I thought I was the business, aged 7.

Always loved his moustache, very fashionable in the Seventies...
Thanks for the memories & great support over many years for the club.

Sorry to learn about Dave Horn. He really was part of a great Palace set-up off the pitch, when we had guys like Charlie Simpson and Alan Harris and of course the great Alan Leather, who the players used to call 'Clouseu' because of his likeness to the Peter Sellers character.

He had a son, Rob, who played junior and reserve football for Palace before moving on to Barnsley.

Sadly missed, but brings back happy memories of a joyful time to be a Palace fan in the mid to late 1970's.

Sorry to hear that. Always had time to chat to us fans in mid 70s when players often got on football special train home with us from places like Plymouth. I was autograph mad as a youngster then and he signed my book for me and added "Trainer" underneath his signature.

Missed this, sad news.

In the early 80s we had a young reserve Keeper, who didn't make it and quit football, Bob Horn, who I think was his son. Saw him play in the reserves a few times I believe he gave up football and joined the Police.

I think they are:
Horn, Taylor, Holder, Steve Perrin??, David Kemp, Chatterton, Martin Hinshelwood, Mark Nightingale?? and Charlie Simpson

Fantastic picture ... but was it 1977-78?

Would love clarification .... that said Kemp had moved on by late '76 .... so I have answered my own question.

I thank you.
