Match Reports

Quality match reports can create a picture of a game in the readers mind, though sometimes if the reader was at the game they might question the writer’s view of the game, a player’s performance, a goal, an incident etc.!

So that you can create an image of a game or better still, help bring back memories of games you have attended, we have created three sub-sections in this part of the museum dedicated to match reports.

The two match reports sections are ‘Classic Games’, (which includes the Posh’s first FA Cup game in 1935, our victory against the mighty Arsenal in the FA Cup in 1965, our FA Cup games against 1st Division sides Leeds Utd and Manchester Utd in the 1970’s, our win over Liverpool in the Rumbelows Cup in 1991 and the 1992 Wembley Play-Off final against Stockport County), ‘The FA Cup’ (which contains 115 match reports from games involving the Posh in the FA Cup) and ‘The 2001/02 Season’ (which includes a  report from our FA Cup encounter against Bobby Robson’s Newcastle Utd team which included international stars Alan Shearer, Shay Given and Craig Bellamy).

To view the reports click on the ‘Museum’ tab at the top of this page, hover over ‘Match Reports’ then click on the  the sub-section you wish to view (i.e. Classic Games or The 2001/02 Season). From there just click on the match report you wish to view and the report will appear.

The reports have been sourced from the Posh website (, PUFC programmes, as well  as local newspapers Peterborough Today, formerly the Peterborough Evening Telegraph ( and the now defunct Peterborough Standard.

This section of the museum is work in progress and we will continue to add reports (and create new sub-sections for other seasons, competitions etc.) when we have re-produced the reports.

If there are any particular match reports / seasons you would like to see in this section please contact us and we will try to get them produced and published (simply email us at

Thanks to Stephen Fox and Joe Douglass who helped us produce this section of the museum.
