He didn’t score in their final league match which ended 2-2 with Sheffield Wednesday last Wednesday, but striker Stern John was equally happy as Crystal Palace battled to the end to avoid being relegated from the English Championship Division.
And his late equalizer in a 1-1 draw with Derby County last month turned out to be maybe the club’s most vital point of the season as it helped to ensure Sheffield were unable to catch them in the end.
“We were overjoyed at the final whistle because the game turned out to be a tense one and Sheffield threw everything at us in an attempt to get the winner. But we put up a very brave fight and we held them off. Hats off to all the guys, the club and the fans for the effort,” John said.
“Now it’s a situation of seeing where the club can improve for next season to avoid getting into this kind of situation again. And I personally will be looking to see what is the best option for my career at this stage.
Whether I stay on in England or move to another League will be one of the decisions ahead of next season,” John added.
Keon's keen on Islanders move.
National team midfielder Keon Daniel is excited about finally being able to secure an overseas professional contract which will see him line up with Puerto Rico Islanders in the American A-League this season.
The Tobago-born player signed a one-year deal last month with the Puerto Rican club and is awaiting a work visa before he can play his first game for the team. Daniel had been on trial in Europe before, including a stint with English side West Ham United but hadn’t been able to secure a deal.
