Posh complete permanent move for Barnet attacker Ephron Mason-Clark.
Peterborough United have bolstered their attacking ranks with the signing of Ephron Mason-Clark from Vanarama National League leaders Barnet for an undisclosed fee, with the 23-year-old penning a three-year deal at the Weston Homes Stadium.
Mason-Clark has made over 150 appearances for the Bees after progressing through their Academy and played against Posh during the pre-season friendly between the two sides at the Hive, catching the eye with a strong performance. A host of clubs were chasing his signature, but he has committed his future to The Posh.
Manager Grant McCann said: “We are delighted to get Ephron, he has been out main target for a number of weeks and I am pleased we have been able to make it happen, thanks to the work of Barry Fry and the chairman Darragh MacAnthony.
“Ephron is very direct, can play anywhere across the front line, he is physically strong and brave and will add more firepower to our attack. He has the hunger and determination to improve and we are really looking forward to working with him.”
Mason-Clark completed the formalities at the idverde Training Ground on Friday and met his new team-mates for the first time. Mason-Clark scored 22 goals for the Bees during his stay at the club and scored in back-to-back games in the National League this season against Halifax and Gateshead.
Mason-Clark said: “When I heard of the interest and spoke to the manager, I knew this was the right place for me. I have been at Barnet since the age of 10, so a long time, and i have played a lot of games, so I felt it was the right time for the next challenge and I can't wait to get started."
Mason-Clark will wear the number 10 shirt.
