Another couple of autographs that need forum input. Top of the page is Bob McNab but not sure the other two. Any help appreciated.

Apparently the one on the right is Delia Smith. The other one looks like Eddie but I can't figure out the surname

The only Eddie involved in that game was Eddie Kelly and it surely isn't him. No idea really.

Wasn't aware Delia Smith took any part in it although she could have played in midfield for Palace a few times. In fact she might as well have played centre back last weekend.

The last one is definitely not Eddie Kelly. I wondered if it might be eddie presland although he had left palace a year earlier. I can't even think of a celebrity of that time called Eddie (although not sure Delia classifies as a celebrity)

The one on the right looks like Dave Sexton's autograph, have a number of items signed by him when at Crystal Palace and is very similar.

Eddie Clamp was with Arsenal in the early 1960's. Did Charlton's Eddie Firmani make a guest appearance in this game? Celebrity wise, you have got Eddie Calvert.He had lots of 1950s and early 60s chart hits.He was known as' the man with the golden trumpet.' Sounds a bit rude to me, always going on about his golden 🎺.

Thanks that is a very good suggestion and make sense. He was s former arsenal coach and in 1970 the chelsea manager so him being at the game would make sense.
