Crystal Palace cheerleaders' 2013 calendar a hit with fans

CRYSTAL Palace's cheerleaders are mirroring the Eagles fine run of form – having already sold more copies of their 2013 calendar than this year's effort.

Each page of the calendar, which has so far sold 600 copies, features a photo from a match day at Selhurst Park.

Claire Eglinton, 23, has been a Crystal for two seasons and was more than happy to star in 2012's October.

Now she is 2013's February and is looking forward to Eagles fans seeing her.

She said: "I had October last year so it was really strange getting tweets throughout the month with pictures of my page on people's desks and stuff like that but it was really fun too. I enjoy it.

"I felt really comfortable doing it because we're just in our normal uniforms and we're on the pitch we're on all the time.

"It was the same photographers as last year too so that was good.

"I really feel like there are more people supporting the Crystals' now. More people like us then don't.

"I'm really pleased so many calendars have been sold. It proves people like us and are interested in us, not just on the pitch or in a YouTube video."

Claire joined the Crystals in 2011 and was new to cheerleading, although she has been dancing her entire life.

She said: "When Crystal Palace rang me they asked if I wanted to audition. Before I knew it I was in the team.

"All the girls are really lovely, it's a great group. I really enjoy doing it, the atmosphere is amazing and I love being able to sign everything and meet people and stuff.

"It's much more like dancing than typical cheerleading so it wasn't too difficult for me to get used to. I love being a Crystal."

The calendars cost £8 and are available from the box office or by phoning 08712 000 071.
