Peter McNamee

Born 20 March 1935 in Glasgow.

A dazzling left-winger, Peter was signed by George Swindin in 1955 and had played 109 times for Posh before they even reached the Football League in 1960. He went on to play over 200 more games for the club before retirement in 1966.

Peter was a star of the club’s famous five attackers that smashed in 134 Fourth Division goals in their debut Football League season in 1960-61. The winger’s share was 16.

However Peter’s most famous goal was the winner in that FA Cup tie against Arsenal in 1965. He was on hand to tap into an empty net after Ron Barnes had skipped past Gunners full-back Don Howe and crossed from the right wing.

Did you know: Peter is rumoured to have said that he knew his time in the game was up the day he was asked to ‘tackle back’!
