Unlike no cheerleader ever seen at Crystal Palace before, a husband-to-be’s friends made sure he shook his pom poms at the club’s beer festival.

Dressed like one of the members of the football club’s popular cheerleading group The Crystals, Peter Simpson was among hundreds of people who got into the spirit on Saturday afternoon.

While the FA Cup final was shown on screens at Selhurst Park, drinkers enjoyed more than 220 different beers, ales and ciders, listened to music and enjoyed pub grub.

Anyone disappointed by the stag’s efforts could meet The Crystals who were giving out the commemorative glasses and posing for photographs.
