Palace Snatch Early Goal and Win over Southampton

Saturday 29 November 1969

Division One

Southampton   0

Crystal Palace  1   (Kember  7)

P1020369

In a disappointing game Crystal Palace grabbed all two points from a well worked early goal. Satisfied with that goal the Palace team then decided that was all the attacking guile they would offer for the afternoon, and stepped back and prepared to defend the rest of the game. Unfortunately Southampton couldn’t provide anything of an attacking nature and couldn’t by pass the visitor’s stronghold defence.
