Palace duo hint at longer Borough stay


CRYSTAL Palace duo Bayan Fenwick and Alex Wynter seem to have settled instantly at loan club Eastbourne Borough and have hinted they could stay longer than their initial one-month agreements.

Wynter's deal is set to run out next week but the centre-back is thriving at non-league level, while Fenwick only joined his Eagles team-mate earlier this week and both contributed to Borough's 2-1 win over Hayes & Yeading on Tuesday night.

"I only had my first training session on Monday and I'm here for a month," Fenwick told Advertiser Sport.

"If both clubs want us to stay longer, that means we're doing well – it depends on what Palace and Eastbourne can agree.

"It's about getting as many games under our belts."

And Wynter told Advertiser Sport he believes the nature of the game at Blue Square South level will only put him in a good stead towards the Palace first-team squad, while he hailed the support he's received from everyone at the south coast club.

"I wasn't sure what it would be like for the first time being away from Palace, but Eastbourne is like a second home and everyone has made me feel welcome," he said.

"The management at Palace said if I'm going to make mistakes, to get them out now - I'm going to need the physicality of this level."

Furthermore, having had experience in the new U21 development league this season with the Eagles, the defender says it's been a great introduction to clubs up and down the country.

"I think it's brilliant because you're coming up against guys who will be playing in the Premier League and their countries," said Wynter.

"For a club like Palace in the Championship to test ourselves week in, week out against the top clubs – there's nothing better really for us."

For the full interview with Fenwick and Wynter, where the duo talk about the match on Tuesday, including a certain penalty decision and a chance to score from close range, do not miss the current edition of the Croydon Advertiser.
