View Full Version : Joseph Bulcock's Grave

A friends son is in the Chelsea Acadamy and played in the recent Premier League's Christmas Truce Tournament in Belgium. The event was covered by Match Magazine and the proud dad sent me a picture of his son in action from the mag. On looking at it I noticed an info box in the bottom right which mentioned the players visit to the grave to the grave of Crystal Palace player Joseph Bulcock.

Anyone able to shed any further light on this as I don't ever recall hearing anything about this story?
