Loads of Crystal Palace fans on Twitter have been sharing their happy memories of a historic club outing on its 30th anniversary.
Monday spelt 30 years to the day since an Ian Wright and Mark Bright-inspired Eagles team came back from two goals down in the second leg of the Football League Second Division play-off final to defeat Blackburn Rovers and get back to the big time.
Goals from Wright (2) and David Madden on the day sealed a 3-0 victory for Steve Coppell’s men, enough to overturn the 3-1 deficit from the first leg at Ewood Park just a couple of days earlier.
And to celebrate, the club’s official account on the social media platform Twitter posted highlights from the thrilling game, featuring two famous pitch invasions at Selhurst Park.
Wait until the end for the pitch invasion?❤️️What a moment in Palace’s history 30 years ago, today? pic.twitter.com/1xPy8cOK7V

And there were 2 pitch invasions, first one after @IanWright0 scored our 3rd goal, then the one at the end and proud to have been part of both?

What a day! Sadly I was nowhere near the pitch for the invasion – think we were pretty much in the back row of the Arthur seats. One of the loudest atmospheres ever at Selhurst Park.

Still remember my old man trying to grab me as I ran on the pitch. Think I was 13 or 14. Glory days!
