Deeping Provide Final Pre-Season Test

Posh players hoping to stake first team claim at Deeping this evening.

29 July 2019

Peterborough United conclude their pre-season matches tonight at the Haydon Whitham Stadium, playing against local team Deeping Rangers FC. The last time these two sides battled it out was in 2017, 22nd July in another pre-season game, in which Posh won 4-1 thanks to goals from Danny Lloyd, Ricky Miller and Morgan Penfold.

Deeping Rangers are a football club based in Market Deeping, and were established in 1964, playing at Maxey Road until a switch to Outgang Road in 1985. First team Manager Michael Goode has coached the Rangers since June 2015, and has enjoyed an extremely successful time at the club, finishing 2nd in the United Counties League Premier Division twice. Striker Scott Mooney enjoyed a very successful 2017/18 season, scoring 15 goals in 31 appearances.

Both sides will be looking to end pre-season successfully, adding confidence to the team as they go into their first competitive games of the season on Saturday. Posh have experienced a positive pre-season campaign, losing only to Reading at the Madejski Stadium 4-2 (goals from Ivan Toney and Mohamed Eisa), and the players playing in tonight’s game won’t want to change this.

Serhat Tasdemir joined Peterborough from AFC Fylde this summer, and the recently-turned 19-year-old has been a revelation in pre-season, scoring 4 goals from the number 10 role; most notably a stunning long-range effort in a 3-1 win against Barnet. Louis Reed is another young player expected to start – the 22-year-old joined from Sheffield United in the summer of 2018, and after enjoying a bright first season the central midfielder is looking to add to the 36 appearances he made.

Jason Naismith is also someone expected to start against Deeping tonight. The Scottish defender can play both right-back and at centre-half, a trait that saw him sustain a key position in the defence last season.

Peterborough United Vs Deeping Rangers FC will kick-off tonight at 7:30 at the Haydon Whitman Stadium with adults admitted for £8.

George Cooper staked a claim for a first team berth with four goals as Posh ended pre-season with a convincing win.

Peterborough United ended their pre-season friendly campaign with a resounding 8-1 victory over Deeping on Monday evening with midfielder George Cooper scoring four and Louis Reed bagging arguably the goal of July with a stunning strike in the first half.

It didn’t take long for Posh to open the scoring, Idris KANU, playing down the middle, tapping home from close-range after good work from Frazer Blake-Tracy down the left. Posh pushed for a second goal but it was the hosts who levelled as MOONEY fired home from just inside the box past Conor O’Malley.

The lead was restored in some style by REED who fired home an unstoppable half volley from distance into the top corner after Deeping could only half clear a cross from the right. On the stroke of half-time, Posh extended their lead as COOPER got his first of the night, curling home with his left-foot after the hosts backed off.

COOPER made it 4-1 at the start of the second half, drilling a low left-footed effort past Elsom and into the bottom corner. Rhys Bennett saw a downward header from a corner bounce over the top before COOPER completed his hat-trick as he finished off a superb flowing move with a controlled first time finish.

KANU grabbed his second of the night as he toe-poked past the keeper after another eye-catching move before COOPER grabbed his fourth as he twisted and turned before lifting the ball over Elsom with his right-foot.

The final goal of the night was made very much in the Academy as two substitutes combined to great effect, Archie Jones with a wonderful pass to release Brad ROLT who slotted the ball past Elsom. Flynn Clarke was denied by Elsom and Cooper sent an audacious chip over the top after a clever flick from Rolt as Posh pressed for goal nine.

Elsom had earlier made saves from Reed and Tasdemir while O’Malley was not really called upon to make any serious saves following Deeping’s goal.

Posh begin their Sky Bet League One campaign on Saturday when Fleetwood Town visit the Weston Homes Stadium. Buy your tickets now at www.theposhtickets.com.
