Posh Legends Take Striker Session

25 February 2015

Posh legends Ken Charlery and David Farrell took an attacking training session on Tuesday.

They are two of the most iconic Peterborough United footballers of a generation and on Tuesday afternoon, they were at Nene Park Academy to pass on their words of wisdom to the current Posh squad.

Ken Charlery, who scored twice at Wembley to secure Posh promotion against Stockport County, and David Farrell, who scored arguably the greatest hat-trick in the club's history, were invited to take an attacking training session by caretaker manager David Robertson.

'We thought it would be nice to bring in a bit of freshness to training and I felt it was important to embrace the history and identity of this football club and I could not think of two better players to take a training session than Ken and David.

'We want to play an attacking style of play. We showed the players the video of King Ken's two goals at Wembley and then the hat-trick by Faz as a winger in the semi-final against Barnet in 2000.

'We want to inject a little bit of emotion into the players as well, we want them to understand what it means to be a Peterborough player. To have them come in was a great experience, they offered some advice to the forwards and the wingers and link that in to scoring goals because that is what we want to do on Saturday.

'We will be approaching the game in a fresh way. We hope the players understand what is required of them and we are looking forward to the game,' Robertson said.
