Palace slump to Cherries defeat

Last updated : 19 July 2002 By Palace Dan
Palace slumped to a 2 - 0 defeat at the hands of Bournemouth in the latest pre season friendly at the Fitness First stadium last night. Both goals came in the second half of a disappointing match, which was memorable only for the walk out protest by the home fans 10 minutes from the end. Palace were again without Berhalter, Symons, Morrison, Riihilahti, Akinbiyi and Smith, so supporters can draw some comfort from the fact that we lost with a very under strength team.
