Re: Departures

Another departure this weekend, John David Sewell. Never heard of him? Well he played over 400 games for Crystal Palace, Charlton and Leyton Orient in the 1960s and 1970s and in that time, he was never cautioned, let alone sent off, a booking by Kevin Howley at Bolton being rightly rescinded. Now he has died aged 85 and many of the older folk at Selhurst Park, myself included, will mourn the loss of a man who played 231 games for the Palace, the majority in Div 1 and many as club captain. I hope that there will be a suitable commemoration of his life on Saturday before the game v Villa (I will be there). RIP John.
