Peter­bor­ough Sun­day Af­ter­noon League to con­tinue

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

THE Peter­bor­ough Sun­day Af­ter­noon League is set to con­tinue next sea­son.

League chiefs have held talks with their Peter­bor­ough Sun­day Morn­ing League coun­ter­parts over a pos­si­ble amal­ga­ma­tion, but they are keen to go it alone and con­tinue a tra­di­tion which stretches back to 1955.

League of­fi­cial Kevin Bri­ers said: “An amal­ga­ma­tion is not be­ing ruled out com­pletely, but the league com­mit­tee have de­cided they would like to con­tinue to pro­vide the op­tion of Sun­day af­ter- noon foot­ball if there is de­mand.

“We have de­cided the min­i­mum num­ber of teams to make that vi­able is 10 and we will go ahead if we reach that fig­ure.

“We will be hold­ing our an­nual meet­ing ear­lier than usual on June 26 so as if there are not suf­fi­cient num­bers to run a league, there will still be time for teams to ex­plore the pos­si­bil­ity of play­ing on a Sun­day morn­ing.”

Any prospec­tive new teams in­ter­ested in join­ing should con­tact Kevin Bri­ers on 07866 665829 as soon as pos­si­ble.

TEENAGE city tal­ent Daniel Rowe is a big step closer to ful­fill­ing his dream of be­com­ing a pro­fes­sional foot­baller.

The 15 year-old has been of­fered a two-year schol­ar­ship by Le­ices­ter more than a year in ad­vance.

Goalscor­ing mid­fielder Rowe has made good progress dur­ing the past two sea­sons in the Foxes youth set-up. He has reg­u­larly ap­peared for both their Un­der 15 and Un­der 16 sides this sea­son.

Proud dadterry, who en­joyed a pro ca­reer him­self at Brent­ford and in Amer­ica, said: “Daniel has im­proved an aw­ful lot in his time at Le­ices­ter and it’s great for him to be of­fered the schol­ar­ship al­ready.

“It will start next sum­mer so Daniel has three more years ahead of him at Le­ices­ter in which he can hope­fully con­tinue to progress and earn a pro­fes­sional con­tract.”

Rowe, a pupil at Ken Stimp­son School in Wer­ring­ton, made his name on the lo­cal Ju­nior Al­liance scene with Wood­ston Dy­namo.

He had spells at other pro­fes­sional clubs in­clud­ing Posh and Not­ting­ham For­est be­fore join­ing Le­ices­ter.
