Match Of The Past: Peterborough United

0 By Ian  |   The Ball  |   October 22, 2012  |     11


We continue our series of archive matches of the clubs of the Football League Championship this morning with Peterborough United. Peterborough were formed in 1934 and were elected into the Football League in 1960 in place of Gateshead. They won the Fourth Division championship at the first attempt, but were relegated back to the Fourth Division in the summer of 1968 after serious financial irregularities were found in the clubs accounts. Our six matches are from the years between 1963 and 2011, kicking off with an FA Cup match against Watford from November 1963, introduced by Kenneth Wolstenholme, whilst our second match sees them at home againsst Middlesbrough in a Division Two match from 1975.

Our third match sees Peterborough United at home against Manchester City in an FA Cup Fifth Round match from February 1981, and we then skip forward to the 1989/90 season for two matches from the First Round of the FA Cup against non-league Hayes. Our fifth match sees Peterborough at home against Cardiff City from the 1990/91 season, whilst the final match in this post is a match that will still likely be fresh in the memory of most of the clubs supporters, the home derby match against Ipswich Town from the start of the 2011/12 season.
