Palk or Polk
Palk has often been recorded as Polk
"It's all down to a mix-up with the birth certificate when I first signed for the Reds For some reason I had two birth certificates, one with Palk and one with Polk On the day I signed I had to produce it and must have shown them the wrong one The name Palk is Cornish and is actually pronounced with an 'O', so I can understand how the confusion has come about It's never bothered me though"— Palk explains the confusion over his surname
