The Posh Supporters Trust were sad to hear that former Peterborough Utd employee Derek Poole recently died (1st August 2016).
Derek was employed by Posh for 40 years, most notably as groundsman and kit man. Derek was married to Margaret who also worked at Posh for many years in many roles, most notably in the club ticket office. The pair were regarded so highly for their service and the standard of their work, they were awarded a testimonial match against their beloved West Ham United in July, 2001.
Our thoughts and condolences go to Derek’s wife Margaret and the rest of the family at this sad time.
