Lev­er­ing­ton are spot on

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Etbusiness Daily -

FOOT­BALL: Lev­er­ing­ton Sports Re­serves beat Oundle­town Re­serves 4-3 on penal­ties in last night’s Peter­bor­ough League Divi­sion­three Play-off. The score was 2-2 af­ter 90 min­utes.


“He’s an ex­cit­ing tal­ent and we cer­tainly have an in­ter­est in him. The boy is a very good player.

“He’s had in­jury prob­lems, but that doesn’t con­cern me too much as he would cost us noth­ing and we would only sign him sub­ject to him pass­ing a med­i­cal.”

Swan­son was called up to a Scot­tish se­nior squad in Oc­to­ber 2011, but was forced to pull out be­cause of in­jury. He helped Dundee United win the Scot­tish FA Cup in 2010, but played just 16 matches last sea­son.

Hibs, the team Swan­son sup­ports, are also in­ter­ested in the mid­field play­maker, but the player has his heart set on a move to English foot­ball.

Swan­son said: “It might sound strange as Hibs are my team, but my pre­ferred op­tion right now is to head to Eng­land.

“I’ve a few irons in the fire and I’m just hop­ing some­thing comes off as I’m des­per­ate for a change of scenery.”

Fer­gu­son did con­firm a new sign­ing yes­ter­day with the ap­point­ment of Chris Bur­ton as club physio. The first team worked with tem­po­rary phys­ios to­wards the end of last sea­son af­ter Peter Corder left London Road.

Bur­ton has pre­vi­ously worked for Hull and Barns­ley.

Fer­gu­son re­ported that the fu­ture of goal­keeper Paul Jones is still up in the air. Jones is cur­rently on hol­i­day so no fur­ther talks have yet been sched­uled.

Posh have been linked with a move for Manch­ester United keeper Ben Amos and an­other for­mer United num­ber one Tom Heaton is also be­lieved to be on the club’s ra- dar. Heaton has just been re­leased by Cardiff City, the prob­a­ble des­ti­na­tion of for­mer Posh keeper Joe Lewis.

Fer­gu­son in­sisted he knew noth­ing about ru­mours link­ing trans­fer-listed striker Nicky Ajose with a move to League Two cham­pi­ons Swin­don, but re­vealed there was in­ter­est from ‘The Robins’ last sea­son.

DAR­REN Fer­gu­son has de­scribed Posh trans­fer tar­get Danny Swan­son as an ‘ex­cit­ing tal­ent’.

The Posh boss con­firmed yes­ter­day’s Evening Tele­graph ex­clu­sive about the 25 year-old mid­fielder com­ing to London Road for trans­fer talks.

Swan­son is ex­pected to leave Scot­tish Premier League side Dundee United af­ter al­low­ing his con­tract to ex­pire. He will be a free agent and he fan­cies a move into English foot­ball.

Fer­gu­son said: “Danny is com­ing down for talks and I’m look­ing for­ward to meet­ing him. I’ve spo­ken to a lot of peo­ple about him and they all say good things.
