Maidstone United vs. Crystal Palace

Sellout for Palace friendly

Maidstone United will be celebrating five years at the Gallagher Stadium in style with a sellout match against Crystal Palace.

Just shy of 4,200 will be at the home of the Stones for the game – the first for The Eagles under new boss Frank de Boer.

Club chief executive Bill Williams said: “It’s absolutely fantastic to sellout and we cannot thank Crystal Palace Football Club enough for being part of this fifth anniversary celebration.

“We’ve been inundated with interest from our fans and those Palace supporters living in and around Maidstone.

“Not only is this an historic occasion, as we’ve now broken our attendance record, but if it’s half as good as when Gus Poyet brought his Brighton & Hove team to our stadium, it should be an afternoon that lives long in the memory.”

The Gallagher opened in July 2012, with a match against Brighton & Hove Albion. The then Seagulls manager Gus Poyet kicked off the game, which was watched by a crowd of 2,226.
