McCann Named Best Posh Skipper

17 April 2014

Grant McCann has been named Peterborough United's best ever captain in a poll conducted by the Football League.

The Northern Irish international, who was the skipper when Posh were promoted to the Championship following a play-off success over Huddersfield Town at Old Trafford, beat off competition from Mick Halsall to be named the club's best ever captain.

Chris Turner was the winner of the club's greatest ever manager, polling 43.5%, narrowly beating current boss Darren Ferguson, who received 42.7% of the vote.

George Boyd was named the club's fans favourite, while Tommy Robson was the winner of the Greatest Ever Player vote. The thrilling 4-4 draw with Cardiff City in 2009 was voted the club's Greatest Ever Game, while 1960-61 was the Greatest Ever Season.

Legends of the game including Brian Clough, Bobby Robson, Sir Tom Finney, Billy Wright, Trevor Francis, Billy Bremner and Herbert Chapman have been named in a list of the greatest contributors to clubs’ league history in a vote as part of The Football League’s 125th Anniversary celebrations.

The names feature in lists for each of the current 72 Football League clubs greatest in various categories including managers, players, captains, fan favourites, matches and seasons.  The polls were run by The Football League to celebrate each club’s own contribution to the last 125 years of league football, with the results announced on the anniversary of The Football League’s formation on 17th April 1888 to bring down the curtain on a year of activity celebrating the start of the world’s original league football competition.

Nearly 100,000 votes were cast in the polls after clubs were first invited to compile their own shortlist for each category based on fans’ nominations via social media.
