Crystal Palace stand by their cheerleaders: We're proud of them

Crystal Palace will continue with their cheerleaders, despite calls from 'protestors' for the dance squad to lose their employment and be sacked.

It comes following the scrapping of walk-on girls at PDC Darts events and Formula 1's decision to bin grid girls.

Palace's Crystals are the only cheerleading troupe in the Premier League and have become synonymous with the club's pre-match and half-time entertainment at Selhurst Park.

And club officials have revealed that they will be ignoring the moans for change.

A Palace spokeswoman told the Daily Star: "We are proud of our association with them."
