Peterborough United fans will be provided with free coach travel to the club’s crucial League One encounter at Accrington Stanley later this month.

Posh fans will be provided with free coach travel to the club’s crucial League One encounter at Accrington Stanley on Tuesday 18th April.

Club partner Selco Builders Warehouse, one of the UK’s leading builders merchants, has made the gesture for the trip to Accrington Stanley as part of the celebrations to mark the opening of its new Peterborough branch on Padholme Road East.

Selco has been a partner of the club throughout the 2022-23 season and will now fund a double-decker coach of supporters to make the trip to Lancashire during the vital run-in.

Supporters can book a place on the coach on a first-come-first-serve basis either through or in person at the Weston Homes Stadium Box Office. Those fans who have already booked coach transport for the game will be reserved a spot and given a refund.

Darren Ferguson, manager of Peterborough United, said: “We really appreciate the donation from Selco which will make a massive difference in what will be another important game. The fans have been fantastic all season and their support will be crucial over the coming weeks.

“Selco funding a double-decker supporters coach will hopefully help a few more people travel up to support us for what is a really difficult midweek trip and their backing will be appreciated by me and the team. We’ve been grateful for Selco’s support this season and this is the icing on the cake of their backing.”

Opening in Peterborough has created around 30 jobs in the local area and means Selco now has 75 UK branches. Carine Jessamine, marketing director for Selco Builders Warehouse, said: “We have been supporting Peterborough United throughout the season and wanted to do something to directly assist supporters.

“Following a team around the country isn’t cheap at the best of times and the cost of living crisis we are living through has only made that harder. To mark the opening of our new Peterborough branch, we are delighted to give the fans a helping hand to back their team in an important game at Accrington.”

With hundreds of trade brands always in stock, Selco’s UK branches are firmly focused on helping tradespeople complete their jobs as quickly and effectively as possible. As well as offering trade services, Selco also has a strong digital presence including Click & Deliver and Click & Collect services and a new app – as well as a ‘Dial & Deliver’ telephone service - to make life as convenient as possible for tradespeople.
