Former Posh player Eric Brookes dies

The PST were saddened to hear of the recent passing of former Posh left back Eric Brookes.

Born in Darton near Barnsley Eric played for Barnsley as a teenager and went on to make over 300 appearances for the club before being transferred to Northampton Town in 1969. Having made 81 appearances for the Cobblers he was signed by Posh manager Jim Iley in June 1971 and went on to make 42 Football League appearances for the Posh (including 1 as a substitute) scoring one goal until being released by the club in the summer of 1973.

Our thoughts are with Eric’s family, especially his wife of 54 years Ann, his sons Andrew and Mark, at this very sad time.
