Jack Butland: Crystal Palace gave me fresh energy boost

Jack Butland is proud to be with Crystal Palace.

The 28-year-old England goalkeeper arrived at Selhurst Park in October 2020 from Stoke City, signing a three year deal.

His debut came in the narrow 1-0 FA Cup defeat against Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he made an acrobatic point-blank save against Leander Dendoncker.

Reflecting on his time so far at Palace, he states that “it's been a new direction and a change that [he] needed" and that he felt “back to [his] best."

He also said, “I felt six inches taller [coming] through the door at Palace and [I] just felt so full of energy, life, and ready to go and [I] just felt like the 'keeper I was, you know, three or four [seasons] ago."
