Crystal Palace apologise to Preston for "Lancas**te outfit" claim

Crystal Palace have apologised after describing Preston as a "Lancas**te outfit."

The Eagles made the boob in a Press release announcing the signing of defender Claude Davis from Derby.

Recollecting the time the player spent at Preston at the start of his career, the Selhurst outfit said: "He made over 100 appearances in all competitions for the Lancash**e outfit."

Palace press officer Thomas Coupland insisted: "I would like to apologise.

"It was purely a typo and not a deliberate attempt to tarnish the name of our Championship counterparts."
