NEARLY 150 penguin-clad Poolies descended on the capital on Saturday.
In their traditional end-of-season fancy-dress outing, the P-p-p-p-oolies gathered in Covent Garden before making their way down to Crawley Town ahead of the 2-2 draw.
The Mail dispatched camera-carrying penguin Bernadette Malcolomson to infiltrate the colony, and she returned with some fan-tastic snaps.
Enjoy her gallery in the second of our #Pooliepenguins slideshow.
