GARY Issott was delighted to see his young Crystal Palace players get off to a good start in their pre-season matches with a 4-1 win at Beckenham Town. A good crowd turned up at Eden Park Avenue on Friday and Issott was happy his players got game time under their belts with no problems. "What we wanted was a good pitch, a local game and it was brilliant to come to Beckenham," Issott said. "There was a great turnout from the supporters and hopefully it raised a bit of money for Beckenham. "We have had a positive result and we've come through with no injuries and four goals. "I wanted to give players 45 minutes each, and the next two games there will be 30 and 60 minutes, then the remaining two or three games that's when you're looking to get the majority of the starting squad, who will start the league campaign, 90 minutes. "It gives everyone a chance to show what they can do. "I liked KaiKai's goal because he was in a great position as the furthest wide player, and it's been crossed from our right-back. "Reise Allassani scored a good second and then the third was a good finish from Fehmi, a lad we have from Dartford. "We'll probably have a longer look at him now."
