Bernard Shaw

Posh Historian Peter Lane has paid tribute former player Bernard Shaw, who has sadly passed away.

BERNARD SHAW:  Born 4th September 1929

It is with regret to learn of the passing of former Posh player Bernard Shaw on 20th April 2023 aged 93 years. Bernard was a very stylish, skilful player, playing as a right-half, on the small side with a big heart, a quick busy player always in the thick of the action.

Playing for Posh in the Midland League from 1955/56 up to 1958/59 making a total of 174 appearances, scoring 18 goals. He also helped Posh to win three consecutive Titles during his reign with the Posh. His other passion was golf. His profession was a carpenter, because then players also worked whilst playing for Posh. We send our condolences to his daughter Lesley and family members.

R.I.P Bernard
