Palace set to exit administration

That means Steve Parish's CPFC 2010 consortium can apply for a transfer of Palace's Football League share and take full control of the club.

"This is now the beginning of the end of the rescue of Crystal Palace," said administrator Brendan Guilfoyle.

"I would like to say a special thank you to Steve Parish.

No risk of a points deduction? Yippee!!!


"Without his determination and tenacity it would not have been possible to resolve the many difficulties that arose during such complex and lengthy negotiations."

Palace entered into administration in January and were automatically docked 10 points, with the club's place in the Championship only being secured on the last day of the season with a 2-2 draw at Sheffield Wednesday.

Palace were one of a number of clubs that went into administration last season, most notably Portsmouth - the first Premier League club to suffer that fate.

A number of English teams are in financial difficulties as Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs adopts a tougher stance on unpaid tax bills, with

Sheffield Wednesday becoming the latest club to be served with a winding-up order by HMRC on Friday.
