Palace let keeper go
Crystal Palace have released goalkeeper Sven Scheuer after he failed to impress on trial at Selhurst Park.

The German paid for his own flight to train with the Eagles in an attempt to land first-team football.

But the former understudy to Oliver Kahn at Bayern Munich has left the club after manager Trevor Francis decided not to offer him a contract.

Scheuer played in a 4-2 win for Palace reserves against Plymouth last week and was at fault for one of the goals.

Palace were left short in the position when Alex Kolinko joined Matt Clarke on the injured list.

But the Latvia international is close to a comeback from a groin injury, while Francis has loan signing Nik Michopoulos to fall back on.
