PHIL’S POSH BLOG…Derby Day at the Abax

Connect FM

 It is the big local derby at the ABAX Stadium on Tuesday 18th October when Peterborough United entertain Northampton Town in Sky Bet League One. Not only will it be a game of rivalry on the pitch, but there will be plenty of banter off it too as I go head to head with Gregg, the match day announcer at Sixfields.

The Cobblers have made a good start to life in this division and I am sure it will be a very entertaining encounter. Northampton have sold over 2,000 tickets for the game and I am sure it will be a big crowd at the ABAX. I must stress at this point that the game is ALL-TICKET for Posh fans so make sure you pick up a ticket at – you will not want to miss out on this one!

My role as press officer of the football club is very diverse. One of the things I have been working on is to invite a few former players back to the stadium to be introduced to the fans prior to kick-off. I believe this adds to the atmosphere and hopefully we will have quite a few in attendance.

Tickets for the concert with Sir Elton John at the ABAX are selling well. The concert takes place on Sunday 11th June 2017 so if you are interested, head over to to find out all about it. On this week’s Talking Sport show we will of course be looking ahead to the big local derby, but also discussing boxing and the safety of the sport following the death of a young fighter earlier this month.

I am sure it is a subject that will split the audience, but it is always good to have healthy debate. We are on air from 5pm on Friday!
