Re­mem­ber­ing a Posh fan

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

IT’S 20 years since Peter­bor­ough’s first play-off suc­cesses against Hud­der­s­field and Stock­port, and many fans were proud of their in­volve­ment.

James Sly from Thor­ney wrote to us fol­low­ing the pub­li­ca­tion of this picture of Posh tak­ing on the Ter­ri­ers, as he wanted to mark the mem­ory of a sports-lov­ing rel­a­tive.

James said: “I have cir­cled my cousin Peter Sly, who both Bob French and Alan Swann knew well.

“He cap­tained Spald­ing at both cricket and rugby, but sadly died in a farm­ing ac­ci­dent in 1995. The ET wrote a very fit­ting trib­ute at the time.

“I was with him about two per­sons away too, there were three of us there at the time.”
