The official launch of the Posh Hall of Fame will take place in the Caroline Hand Executive Suite on Thursday, 18th October 2018, with many of the Hall of Fame inductees in attendance.
The event which was organised in conjunction with the Posh Supporters Trust, is open to all Posh fans with tickets priced at just £10 each, which includes a buffet and a complimentary drink.
If you would like to come along and meet some of your old Posh heroes, tickets are available from the Posh Ticket Office, or you can request them by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or calling Barry on 07710 283676.
Tickets are strictly limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis. Tickets will also be available from a member of the Posh Supporters Trust board who will be located in the foyer of The Venue before the Blackpool game on Saturday from 1:45pm.
The PST are pleased to announce they are sponsoring the Posh Ladies 1st Team training / warm up tops.
The Ladies (pictured above) wore them for the first time before their FA Cup game against Chesham Utd on Sunday 23rd September.
At the end of the game Keir Perkins, who the PST are also sponsoring for the 2018/19 season, was awarded Team Player of the Match (sponsored by Electrical Cabling Solutions Ltd).
The Ladies are currently 2nd in the Premier Division of East Midlands Womens League.
The PST treated Alan Brown who lives in Lavender House and is 82 years old to a SMILE treat on Saturday 18th August, with tickets for him and his carer to the Luton Town game.
Alan recalled to PST Chair Ray Cole before the game that he remembered going to watch the Posh in the 1950’s when apart from the old North Stand everywhere was uncovered and he remembered Glebe Road had wooden terracing. He used to go and watch Posh with his mates and stood in the London Road end. His favourite players in the 1950’s were Freddie Martin and Teslim Balogun who scored shed loads of goals for the Posh. He also liked Ken Moody who played right back for the Posh.
Alan was thrilled to meet and have his photo taken with former Posh players Trevor Quow and Robbie Cooke before the game as he had been speaking about former Posh Manager Peter Morris and said what a great little team Posh had in the 1980’s under Peter Morris.
In his younger days Alan used to play football himself for Eye Utd and Wisbech Town and is still an avid football fan. Sadly though hasn’t been able to attend a ‘live’ games for many years.
Alex Wehr, Entertainment Manager at Lavender House said “Alan is football mad and is always talking football. He was really looking forward to coming to watch the Posh again as he has not seen them play for many years and was delighted they won so convincingly and he had a great day out. He would like to thank everyone at Peterborough Utd and the PST who made the day so special”.
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.
PST Chairman Ray Cole explains the role of his organisation within the fan community of Peterborough United.
Ray also discusses the Trust’s relationship with FansBet and how utilising their first “Giving Back” payment has enabled them to vastly improve their Smile Tickets campaign.
