1st Robert Eaton Memorial Fund Match,
Southwick F.C.,Old Barn Way,Southwick,
Friday November 9th 2001 K.O. 19.45.

Not a Palace game admittedly,but thought it needs bringing to the attention that the Annual Robert Eaton Memorial Funds 1st game has recently had its 15th Anniversary! :eek:

Did anyone here play in or go to this game as a fan? I actually thought it was Friday 16th November 2001 but it was a week earlier,It was a cracking night,both fans mingled,we won at the death on penalties after being 0-4 down in the actual game! Peter Taylor was there,as was a film crew from TVS filming a segment for Meridian Tonight. (Which a pissed up Ismale was seen singing arm in arm with The Woolpackers! :D ;) )

It started a annual event which has grown & is still going strong to this day :p
Its great that something good come out of the Harrowing events of 9-11 & that Palace & Weed fans can put the rivalry aside & remember Robert Eaton in this way.

As for anyone who actually remembers that night if you recall a pitch invader who ran on after our winning penalty,mobbed the players & gave loads to the B******* fans behind the goal then,15 years later,i'd like to own up as that was me! :lux:

I met a certain famous BBS'r by the name of Riccardo that night,had a few beers,top top man.
