Palace fans set to stage protest

More than 200 people are expected to march to Selhurst Park on November 28 and hand over a petition to chairman Simon Jordan. The petition asks for Jordan to change the stewarding of the Holmesdale Fanatics, a group of fans who sit in Block B of the Holmesdale Stand. The petition was started after seven fans in the area were ejected by the police and stewards during the 1-1 draw with Middlesbrough. Mike Grafton, organiser of the petition, suggests that this approach to crowd control may have also led to recent low attendances. He told the Croydon Guardian: "We have started the petition to call on Jordan to change the policing and stewarding and be more respectful to fans as young people are being alienated by the way they are being treated by stewards. "There are a few reasons why fans are staying away with stewarding, policing and prices the main three."
