Phil’s Posh Blog…Just One Win and Elton John!

Connect FM

 It has been a difficult few weeks at the ABAX Stadium with no victory in the last eight games in all competitions, but nobody is panicking as we all believe that one win will get us moving up the league table quickly.

In midweek, we were involved in the Checkatrade Trophy. This competition has been hammered from left, right and centre for its format and I think if we are all honest, nobody expected it to be as disappointing as it has been with the attendances.

At Peterborough, we actually attracted the seventh highest attendance of all the fixtures played in the competition, but I am sure the governing body will not be happy with reception it has received and I am confident the format will be changed for the new campaign in 2017.

Whilst the football on the pitch has been frustrating, we have all been working hard on a number of projects including bringing Sir Elton John to the ABAX for a wonderful concert on Sunday 11th June 2017.

Our commercial manager Alex Harris has put this together with the help of the promotions company and we are all looking forward to what should be a night to remember. Tickets are available through a number of outlets, but if you check out the club website or this website, you will be able to find out how you can obtain tickets.

I have been really pleased with the calibre of guests we have been able to attract to the Talking Sport show on Friday afternoons (5pm-6pm). In recent weeks we have had players from Northampton Town, Peterborough Phantoms Ice Hockey Team, a member of the Team GB Paralympian football side and former England manager Kevin Keegan on our show!
