Palace saved from extinction
Crystal Palace have been saved from extinction after CPFC2010 agreed a deal to buy both the club and Selhurst Park.
Club administrator Brendan Guilfoyle had set a deadline of 1500 BST on Tuesday to reach an agreement with Lloyds Bank or he would begin the liquidation process.
However, CPFC 2010, led by fans Steve Parish and Martin Long, signed on the dotted line to save the club.
A statement from Lloyd's Bank read: 'Stadium administrator Pricewaterhousecoopers has reached an agreement in principle with CPFC 2010 in relation to the sale of Selhurst Park.
'This enables the consortium to go ahead with the purchase of both the Crystal Palace Football Club and Selhurst Park.'
Palace fans protested in force outside the headquarters of Lloyd's Bank yesterday and this seemed to prompt the 11th hour deal.
There is still a lot of work to do at the club as former manager Neil Warnock plans to raid the club who are £30 million in the red.
Warnock is lining up bids for keeper Julian Speroni and midfielder Darren Ambrose, who scored the goal to secure their Championship status.
