Introducing Peterborough

15 June 2015

Posh are expected to be one of the front runners in League One next season...

Name: Peterborough United Football Club
Founded: 1934
Stadium: London Road
Capacity: 15, 460
Manager: Dave Robertson
Last season: 9th in League One

Having finished level on points with Fleetwood Town last season, Peterborough United will be hopeful of pushing for a place in the top six this coming year. 

With change afoot throughout the London Road outfit, under recently appointed manager Dave Robertson, Posh are one of the favourites for promotion.

The 41-year-old took over at Peterborough on a caretaker basis in February, following the departure of former manager Darren Ferguson, before being appointed on a permanent basis in May.

A former Royal Marine, Dagenham-born Robertson served his country from the age of 17 and won the coveted Green Beret during his time.

Robertson spent a week on a coaching course in Portsmouth, and after leaving the Marines in 1998 – he decided to pursue a career in that field, spending two-years at Peterborough United in 2003, via stints at Crystal Palace, and in the United States.

After overseeing the development of youth players at London Road, he was handed the opportunity to manage the first-team last season.

Posh won six of their 15 games under Robertson, and next season will see him assisted by Grant McCann in the dug-out.

Midfielder Michael Bostwick will be the man to watch out for next term – following on from an impressive 2014/15 season.

The 27-year-old was born in the Eltham area of London, and subsequently began his playing career in the youth team at Millwall.

Bostwick spent two spells on loan at Crawley Town, before leaving Millwall in January 2007 – in order to sign a permanent deal at Rushden and Diamonds, which was followed by a season at Ebbsfleet.

Bostwick joined Stevenage in August 2008, and helped the Hertfordshire club to back-to-back promotions, in a four-year spell.

Following 166 appearances for Stevenage, he made the move to Peterborough United in July 2012, and turned out 41 times last season, scoring seven goals.

The Cod Army have met with Peterborough twice, with the last meeting ending in a 1-1 draw at Highbury in February, Mark Roberts the Fleetwood scorer.
