    yes they have.
  • I wonder if we could end up sharing it with them?  (runs for cover).

    They used to train behind Sparrows Lane didnt they, as there was that incident when Curbs / McCarthy were the Managers of the two clubs and there was some incident in the 90s (elbow thrown during a game) where Curbs called Mick and told him to come over as he wanted him to see the footage before we made the complaint.
  • Sounds sensible as the training ground in Downham is a bit knackered. Weren't we once looking at moving the training ground to Kings Hill?
  • Thought they used facilities near South Circular, blackheath rugby?

    Last time I looked their training ground was in Bromley/ Ravensbourne, nr the golf course. I suppose you could say it was Downham but residents would say otherwise....😄

    Was that Pat Van den How on Shaun Newton in the first minute of the game where we won 2-0, Bowyer and Leaburn scoring?

    Yeah I think that was the fella
  • But at least they will own there own land...
  • Article says that it would be easy to get to........just depends on where the players live. Assuming most live Bromley, Chislehurst & that side of the M25 then traipsing through the back streets of Swanley & Sidcup when the A20 is buggered wont be fun.

    Often thought that if ever we were in a position where we had to leave The Valley it would be an ideal place to move to.

  • I'm surprised Palace haven't thought about moving to another site, as their training ground looks pretty cramped to me, and with their vast PL income they could afford something much better
  • Palace have the old Natwest sports ground in Copers Cope Road Beckenham and have spent quite a bit on laying quite a few pitches and an indoor one too.

  • plenty of other grounds adjacent to the Palace one they could just probably purchase to increase in size

    And Kent County Cricket Club allow them to use their adjacent facilities - unfortunately!

    Not an easy place to get to for their youngsters who don’t yet drive using public transport.
    Have they thought that through?

    Millwall Football Club's Academy, based at the Well Hall training ground, is a source of great pride for everyone connected with The Lions.

    Some of their fans will be able to walk there from the Ash campsite though.
