SMILE treat at the Fleetwood Town game

For the Posh Supporters Trust first Smile Scheme Treat of the new season, we treated 15 year old Ellis Darnes and his mum, Ashlea to free tickets for the opening game against Fleetwood Town.

Ellis has suffered from a rare congenital heart defect since birth and has bravely had to go through many open heart surgeries, procedures and tests throughout his lifetime, under the care of the Birmingham Children’s Hospital. Although he can’t play due to his condition, Ellis has developed a keen interest in football and his mum says “He loves to watch it on TV and to talk about it to anyone who will listen!”
The Fleetwood game was Ellis’ first Posh match and despite the result, his mum said “he enjoyed every minute of it and had a massive grin on his face”.

Ellis is due to undergo major open heart surgery again in the near future and we at the Trust would like to wish him all the best for that.

Ellis is pictured with PST Board members Dene and Sue Butler along with George Cooper and Josh Knight.

Ellis was nominated for his Smile Treat by his neighbour, Posh Statistician, Mick Robinson.

If you know of anyone who deserves a Smile Treat, please contact Sue at butlersusan79@gmail.com

Former Posh player Bob Doyle dies

The Posh Supporters Trust were sad to hear that former Posh player Bob Doyle died on the 26th February 2019 aged 65.

Born in Dumbarton, Scotland, Bob was signed by Noel Cantwell in July 1976 for £20,000 from Barnsley. Soon becoming a Posh favourite, Bob was voted Posh player of the season twice and was in the side that missed out on promotion to Division 2 on goal difference.

A fine passer, Bob was a stylish midfielder who scored his fair share of goals for the Posh. In total Bob made 130 League, 8 FA and 18 FL Cup appearances for the Posh.

Our thoughts and condolences go to Bob’s family at this very sad time.
