Crystal Palace will support those affected by the Croydon tram crash “in any way we can”, says boss Alan Pardew.

Seven people were killed when a tram derailed in south London on Wednesday, 9 November with 51 taken to hospital, eight of who were said to be suffering “serious or life-threatening” injuries.

Pardew said some of the victims’ families would be at Palace’s home game against Manchester City on Saturday.

“The terrible events in Croydon had a massive impact on us,” he added.

Some Palace supporters were among those who lost their lives and Pardew said the club had contributed to a fund to help the victims of the incident and their families.
