Don't forget ? Palace v Man United next week

Last updated : 31 March 2006 By Nik Taylor

Palace's FA Cup Final re-run against Manchester United is now less than a week away.

The match, organised by Palace's inspirational former captain Geoff Thomas, is set for next Thursday 6th April with a 7.45pm kick-off.

Geoff has put in some magnificent work to reunite the two squads from the 1990 FA Cup Final between the Eagles and the Reds.

Ian Wright, Mark Bright and Gary O'Reilly are among the names turning out for the Palace side, while United will be represented by the likes of Bryan Robson, Mark Hughes and Steve Bruce. The teams will be led out by Steve Coppell and Sir Alex Ferguson.

A few guest appearances are also being made on either side, with Palace including current boss Iain Dowie and chairman Simon Jordan in their squads. United will welcome back former striker Dwight Yorke, as he looks to keep up his fitness ahead of Trinidad and Tobago's World Cup campaign.

Geoff has put the match together to raise money for leukaemia research, a mission he has devoted himself to full-time since going into remission from the disease.

Tickets are available from the box office (08712 000071) at £15 for adults (£20 on the day), £5 concs. Make sure you get along and give Geoff and the rest of the players your full support!
