There will be a new Crystal Palace player towering over the South Circular soon and it will be up to fans to decide what the strap line will be.

After the success of the Wilfried Zaha ‘He’s just too good for you’ billboard campaign, Crystal Palace FC have decided the club’s midfield general Mile Jedinak will be the new face on the billboard.

The six metre by six metre poster, part of the club’s South London and Proud campaign, was created by the club’s design department.

It is situated at the cross roads between Streatham Hill, Brixton Hill, Streatham Place and Christchurch Road.

The club have asked fans to submit their headline ideas before Monday January 15 with the winning entry being emblazoned across the new billboard.

Fans can enter by visiting the club’s Facebook page, cpfc.org, Holmesdale.net or send an email to info@cpfc.co.uk.

Co-chairman Stephen Browett said: “Following on from the enormous publicity generated by previous “South London and Proud” billboard campaigns we thought that it was time to do another.

“The Wilfried Zaha poster on the South Circular has been seen by thousands of people but it’s time for a change so naturally we thought of featuring our captain who has been in such fantastic form this season.”
