George was both a player and coach for us. For us older fans one of the names synonymous with Palace of the 60s and early 70s. I only saw him at the end of his career. However as a coach was a great influence on the younger players notably David Payne and Steve Kember. Was very influential on the training ground when coach under Bert Head.
Condolences to his family and friends. A gentleman that was behind some great times and memories.

RIP George. Was a member of the team that took us up in 63/64 season when I first followed Palace. You served Palace proudly as player and coach. Condolences to your family and friends.

I attended Palace schoolboy training in the mid sixties. We'd been used to people like Brian Wood and Stuart Imlach taking the sessions but then George took over and what a change. All very inventive, keeping the ball, especially in tight spots, passing and moving, holding a position and so knowing where your teammates probably were. He also introduced monthly trials at Selhurst - an honour and nerve wracking in equal measure. He, with Terry Long, made all us kids feel so special.
Thank you George. RIP

A really good tribute. As someone has already said, George was a big part of Bert Head's Palace. RIP George

RIP huge influence on the club during his time with us. Remember him both as a player and coach. Was in charge of the team v Fulham on that historic day in April 69'. A inspiring half time team talk helped turn the 0-2 deficit at half time into the 3-2 win and promotion as Bert Head was not at the game-rumour was he was in Scotland scouting for players. Others think humble Bert was leaving the adulation of the fans to the players, George and the rest of the back room staff. Wonderful memories George was a key part of.

Oh dear, one of the first names I associated with Palace when I started to become a fan.

Inevitable obviously, but still very sad to hear. Must have been up there in years.

RIP

Sad. RIP. He assisted me into the Orient changing room in 74/75 at our home game. He was then Orient's manager. Had to stop my mum though! Orient captain Arber organised it , my mum's dad had been on Orient's books. I was a Palace fan though and thrilled to see John Jackson. A few other ex Palace too. I've still not recovered from the huge todgers on show. This probably wouldn't be allowed anymore,
I was 12, but it was completely innocent and such an insight. Bet Fiona Richmond was in the other bl**dy one.

Apparently, Mr Petchey passed away on Dec 23rd and the funeral was yesterday.

A bit before my time, although I do remember him as boss at Orient, where he took several Palace players at what was a relatively good time in Orient’s history.

Strangely enough, he was also boss at Millwall in 78/79 - Palace got promoted as Champions of Division Two, Millwall were relegated to Division Three - which is a huge reason to raise a glass in honour of his name.

Apparently, he was not a man to trifle with and I’m pretty sure fans of the promotion winning Palace side of 1960/61 will probably tell you he took no prisoners in what was then the wing half position, so probably defensive mid nowadays - the 60’s version of Jedinak or Luka (I guess!) - I heard he was pretty tough off the pitch too.

Definitely part of the great success story that was Palace in the 1960’s and I’m pretty sure Orient fans will be also praising his years with them, very close to promotion and brought through some of their greatest players including Laurie Cunningham.

RIP Mr Petchey
