CRYSTAL Palace youngster Jonny Williams wants to gain promotion to the Premier League after witnessing the goal that took the club to the top flight in 2004.
The 19-year-old watched a number of Palace teams over the years on the terraces, but in tomorrow's Croydon Advertiser and the Kent & Sussex Courier, he reveals the team he supported as a kid.
And he also says who his football idol was growing up and who he looks up to in today's game.
"I had the shirts with his name and number on the back," Williams said.
"And I got to meet him after a game recently and he's a legend - he's my idol.
"The main aim for me is to play in the Premier League like he did - to get promoted with Palace would be unbelievable.
Meanwhile, Williams paid tribute to the fans he used to watch games alongside when he was younger for the support they've given him.
"I can't thank them enough for all the support they've given me," he said.
"I can't speak highly enough of them."
For the full exclusive interview with the Academy product, do not miss tomorrow's Croydon Advertiser and Kent & Sussex Courier, where he talks about growing up in the West Kent area as a boy, watching non-league football down at Tonbridge Angels in the Blue Square Bet South and how his move to Palace came about.
