Former Peterborough United players

Posh players from the past were reunited at a special event to raise money for Tommy Robson Statue Fund.

A host of former Peterborough United players came together for a special event to raise money for the Tommy Robson Statue Fund on Saturday evening and the night proved to be a huge success with over £5,000 raised in addition to two charitable donations to Dementia UK and the Motor Neurone Association. 

Among those in attendance on the evening were Dave McVey, Colin Foster, Steve Welsh, Keith Waugh, Mick Gooding, Jackie Gallagher, Tony Adcock, Noel Luke, Wakely Gage, Richard Scott, Gareth Jelleyman and Dave Gregory, but there were scores more across a number of generations. 

The event, which was held at Stamford Football Club and hosted by former stars Micky Gynn and Steve Collins, was arranged in conjunction with Stuart George, a long-term friend of Tommy who passed away following a battle with MND in 2020. 

The Statue Fund is being managed by the TR11 Committee and they continue to make great strides towards their target. PISA 2000 Chairman Adi Mowles said: “With this amazing donation, the fund is now over the £80,000 mark, which means that very soon the committee will get together with Tommy’s family to decide on the statue design. 

“It was a great night and an honour as well as a pleasure to meet up with so many Posh, players and supporters alike. A massive thanks from the TR11 Committee to Stuart, Steve and Micky for their great support. Please visit the website to see other options for donating or just to read some great memories from fans, managers and players.”
