Peter Price

Born 17th August 1949 in Wrexham, Wales.

Peter gained his cult hero status through averaging more than a goal every two games and scoring over 30 goals in a season for the Posh.

Signed by Posh boss Norman Rigby in the summer of 1968, this Welsh striker proved to be a truly impressive goal scorer over the next 4 seasons. He scored on his debut to help Posh beat First Division side West Bromwich Albion in the Football League Cup and went on to form a deadly partnership with Jim Hall.

Peter was most prolific in 1971/72, when his tally of 28 League goals made him the top marksman of the 4th Division. He also bagged four goals in the FA Cup that season to become the only Posh player to top 30 goals in a season since Terry Bly.

Having made 114 Football League appearances plus 5 as a substitute scoring 62 goals, 8 FA Cup appearances scoring 7 goals and 3 Football League Cup appearances scoring 2 goals, in June 1972 Posh’s cash strapped board accepted then 2nd Division Portsmouth’s £27,000 bid for him.

A back injury hindered his progress with Pompey and Peter returned to London Road for a brief loan spell in early 1974/75 making a further 2 league appearances for the Posh however the move didn’t work out and he went back to Portsmouth.

Did you know: Peter started his career under Bill Shankly at Liverpool but failed to make the first team in two years at Anfield.
