Posh away day snap was taken in 1951

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -


United “Statto” Mick Robin­son be­lieves he has iden­ti­fied a mys­tery game we fea­tured.

We thought this picture of a Posh crowd was snapped in 1961, but Mick says that it was five years ear­lier.

He said: “It was taken at Yeovil on Novem­ber 17, 1956.

“It was the first round of the FA Cup and Posh won 3-1. Posh went on to beat Brad­ford Park Av­enue at home 3-0, and Lin­coln City away in a re­play 5-4 af­ter ex­tra time to reach the fourth round for the first time, only to lose to sec­ond di­vi­sion Hud­der­s­field Town 3-1. That game saw 10 spe­cial trains go from Peter­bor­ough.

“In that Hud­der­s­field team was a 16year-old Denis Law mak­ing his eighth ap­pear­ance for the York­shire side. He scored one of the goals, his first in a long FA Cup ca­reer.”
