The Beckenham Boot Camp

This article may explain the lack of new signings

Symons promises blood, sweat and tears at Palace

Crystal Palace have warned potential signings they will face a tough, boot-camp regime at Selhurst Park.

Assistant manager Kit Symons said that new arrivals will face early-morning hikes and boxing sessions as part of Palace's Premiership survival campaign.

Symons said: "We don't want individuals, we want team players who will fit in with our hard-work ethic.

"That's what got us promoted and we need to make sure the players we're looking at have the right character."

Palace have already brought Joonas Kolkka, Julian Speroni, Emmerson Boyce and Mark Hudson to Selhurst Park.

But manager Iain Dowie remains on the look-out for up to five more players.

Symons said: "We're looking at a lot of big-name players and we're hopeful of a few more coming in."

Don't know which big name players Kit's talking about though.
