SMILE treat for Kevin

On the opening day of the season, the Posh Supporters Trust did their first Smile Scheme treat of the 2018/19 campaign.

We treated Kevin McNally to a free ticket for the match against Bristol Rovers. Kevin used to be a rough sleeper, but he has now successfully managed to turn his life around and is now living in supported accommodation run by Axiom Housing Association. Kevin was accompanied by his key worker, Victoria Taylor.

Victoria said “This was an great opportunity for Kevin, who has done amazingly well to turn his life around in such a short space of time. He is a keen football fan, but this is the first live game he has ever been to and it was a wonderful experience for him in recognition of all his hard work.”

The Trust’s Smile Scheme coordinator, Sue Butler said “I think we may have converted a new Posh fan, as Kevin was originally from London and was a Chelsea fan, but he was so in awe of the stadium and the matchday experience that he is now a confirmed Posh fan and is keen to try and raise the funds for himself to attend a Posh match once a month.”

Pictured above is Victoria, Kevin, Sue and Posh player Isaac Buckley-Ricketts on the pitch before the game.

Thanks to our first “Giving Back” payment from our partnership with Fansbet, the Trust has been able to purchase some 12-Game Flexi-Tickets and will now be able to offer Smile Treat tickets, to deserving people in the community, on a more regular basis.

New sub section on our on-line museum

The PST have today (Sunday 5th August 2018) published a new sub-section on our “Posh Reserves” section in our on-line museum.

It’s “The 1950’s” and provides league tables, fixtures, goal scorers and appearance statistics of players who played for Peterborough Utd Reserves during this decade.

We are in the process of producing the remaining sub-sections (every decade from the 1960’s to the 2010’s) and will update the museum as soon as we have finalised the information.
