Former Posh player Ian Ross dies

The Posh Supporters Trust were sad to hear that former Posh player Ian Ross died on the 9th February 2019 aged 72.

Ian made his debut for Liverpool and played for Aston Villa (where captained their side to promotion to the 1st Division and League Cup final).

He had spells on loan at Notts County and Northampton Town before joining the Posh in December 1976.

He made over 100 appearances during two-and-a-half seasons, in which he also served the club in a coaching role.

After Posh he joined First Division Wolverhampton Wanderers primarily as a coach, following former Posh manager John Barnwell. He stepped in as caretaker manager after Barnwell’s sacking in January 1982, taking charge of five games.

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

The View of the Posh Supporters Trust’s Board re: The Future of the ABAX Stadium.

To be transparent at all times, on 3rd January, the Posh Supporters Trust sent the attached statement to both the football club and the city council, giving them time to respond prior to issuing it to our membership.

Whilst we have not had any feedback from either the club or the council to date, the statement issued on 11 January by the football club, possibly prompted by our correspondence, confirms much of our observations to date.
