Palace Pulled The Plug On Beckford

Palace Pulled The Plug On Beckford

It was ironic that new signing Jermaine Beckford should make his Leeds debut against Crystal Palace because he had a trial at Selhurst Park and the London club wanted to sign him.

However, Bob Dowie, Director of Football at Crystal Palace, said the club felt it was a risk to take him for the money his club wanted for him.

Dowie: 'We didn't do a deal because we thought the money got too ridiculous. We got him in and we could have done a deal but we chose not to.

'It went from being a reasonable risk into unreasonable risk. We wish him all the best though, he's a nice lad.'
