The Chris Turner Statue Fund launch night for local businesses takes place at the ABAX Stadium on Thursday 19th November.

A group of long term Posh fans got together immediately after the passing of Chris Turner to discuss the possibility of commemorating the great man in such a way that fellow Posh and football fans in general could pay their respects.

The most visually impressive way it was quickly agreed would be a life-size statue and so the massive project began to raise the funds to finance the tribute.

Local businesses are invited to a launch night on Thursday 19th November (7pm) in the Caroline Hand Executive Suite at the ABAX Stadium - if you are a local business and would like to get involved please email

The official launch night for supporters will take place at the Caroline Hand Executive Suite at the ABAX Stadium on Friday 20th November from 7pm.

Both nights will include a special tribute DVD to Chris Turner with former team-mates and colleagues of the great man set to be present.

Admission for the fans launch night will cost £3 with all money raised going direct to the fund. The bar will also be open on the evening. Tickets can be pre-purchased at or from the Posh Ticket Office in person.
