Open Day A Huge Success

23 March 2013

The Open Day at London Road has been declared a huge success despite the wintry weather.

Peterborough United Football Club held an Open Day at London Road on Saturday and despite the wintry weather, thousands of supporters swarmed into the stadium to participate in events and meet the playing squad.

Manager Darren Ferguson and Chief Executive Bob Symns answered questions from supporters on a variety of subjects in the Posh Venue, while fans of all ages queued into the Executive Suite to meet the playing squad, assistant manager Kevin Russell and first team coach Eoin Jess.

Football freestyler Oliver Hayes was a big hit in the concourse of the South Stand, teaching kids the tricks of his trade while a Bungee run, penalty shoot-out competition and Zorb racing proved popular with everyone.

Ground tours were conducted throughout the afternoon, while fans tried their hand at commentating with the Soccersight guys and a troupe of face painters kept everybody smiling despite the snow.

Boss Darren Ferguson said: 'It has been absolutely magnificent to see so many fans at London Road. We have had a lot of kids coming with their parents and the turnout has been fantastic. It was a shame about the weather, but that is something that we can't control.'

Chief Executive Bob Symns added: 'We had thousands of fans here and a big thank you to everyone who braved the elements to come down. The chairman Darragh MacAnthony is always keen for an Open Day and it is something that we all enjoy doing. The management and players have been fantastic and it was great to see everyone.'

The Club Shop launched a sale in store with up to 50% off selected items and the response from the supporters was superb with hundreds taking advantage of the savings.

BBC Radio Cambridgeshire have been broadcasting throughout the day from London Road with interviews taking place with staff, players, management and supporters. We would like to thank them for their support.
