The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

POSH leg­end Mark Tyler is back at Peter­bor­ough as a player-coach and be­lieves he can raise the bar in the goal­keep­ing depart­ment.

Tyler spent 15 years be­tween the sticks at Peter­bor­ough – rack­ing up 468 ap­pear­ances in the process – and re­turns to the club af­ter Lu­ton Town agreed to let the 38-year-old go.

He joins on a three-month loan with a view to a per­ma­nent move, though his role will pri­mar­ily be coach­ing Ben Al­nwick, Dion Henry and Read­ing loa­nee Stu­art Moore.

“It’s a great op­por­tu­nity and the best thing about it is that it’s a club I love,” said Tyler.

“I wouldn’t have left Lu­ton for any other club – I said that to them – and I’m thank­ful for them al­low­ing me to ex­tend my ca­reer a bit longer.

“I’ve played nearly 800 games and worked with some great coaches. I’ll take some of their ideas but I’ve got some of my own, too.

“Ben’s an ex­pe­ri­enced one and, hope­fully, we can all bounce off each other.”
