Bought to score goals last summer, Connor Wickham stepped up when Palace needed it most to send the Eagles to the FA Cup final. Now they’re there, he’s ready to repeat the feat to possibly clinch the first major piece of silverware in the club’s 110 year history, and make dreams come true.
Having seemingly been around for years, it’s easy to forget that Connor Wickham is just 22-years-old. He made his professional debut before taking his GCSEs, but a promising start at Ipswich Town gave way to setbacks at Sunderland. Now at Palace, he’s hoping that he can get back on track and fulfil the considerable promise that could yet see him become one of the league’s most lethal goalscorers.
