Peterborough Sunday Afternoon League to continue
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.
