CLUB legend Julian Speroni has won the Crystal Palace supporters' player of the year award for a fourth time. The keeper fought off competition from the likes of Joel Ward and Mile Jedinak to scoop the honour. He received his trophy from Eagles boss Tony Pulis at the club's end of season awards night at Fairfield Halls on Tuesday, to strains of 'sign him up' from Palace fans in the room - reference to the Argentine's uncertain contract situation. Elsewhere on the evening, Joel Ward was named young player of the year, while Dwight Gayle won the goal of the season award for his winning strike at Villa Park on Boxing Day. There was also a special commemoration of the life of Ron Noades, the former Palace chairman who died last December, with club legends Steve Coppell, Mark Bright, and Ian Wright paying their respects, along with Mr Noades' widow Novello. Pulis was among several key club figures interviewed on the night, and he gave a rallying cry on how Palace must be "relentless" in their desire to become an established Premier League force. The manager is due to meet with chairman Steve Parish later this week, to make plans for next season and beyond.
