Roy Hodgson to be awarded the Freedom of Croydon

Croydon’s own Roy Hodgson is to be awarded the Freedom of the Borough, Council Leader Tony Newman has announced.

The Palace boss, who was successful in keeping the club in the Premier League this season, is set to be given the honour in the autumn in recognition of his contribution to Croydon and to football, both home and abroad.

The club, which was a "10-minute walk" from his boyhood home, has played a large part in his life. Hodgson had a stint as a youth player with the Eagles, and as a boy he was a Palace fan who attended John Ruskin grammar school, where played for the school team.............
