George Nevett

The Club are delighted to announce the signing of George Nevett from Rochdale.  

The Club is pleased to announce the signing of Wales U19 International George Nevett for an undisclosed fee from National League side Rochdale. The 18-year-old has penned a four-year deal with Posh, with an option for a further year, having officially completed the formalities of the transfer at the idverde Training Ground today.  

With two caps for Wales at U19 level, the centre-back made his debut for the Dale in the last game of the 2022/23 National League season. He was subsequently rewarded with his first professional contract and has impressed this campaign, appearing 34 times as they finished 11th place in the table. 

Posh boss Darren Ferguson was happy to secure the services of the young defender and is excited to have him on board for the start of pre-season next week. “George is another young player we have been watching closely throughout last season. His progression through the campaign has been very impressive and although we think he has massive potential to succeed at this level we don’t want to put too much pressure on an 18-year-old. I’m looking forward to seeing him progress his game in a Posh shirt.”

In his first interview with Posh+, Nevett confessed he is ecstatic to have completed the move to PE2. “I am really looking forward to the challenge ahead. Given where I was a year ago it really is a dream come true to be sitting here about to play at this level. 

 “Everything I heard when I spoke to the manager enticed me to sign for Posh and when I look at young players like Ronnie Edwards who came here from Barnet at a similar age to me, I really do have role models for what I am looking to achieve in my own career. 

“I like to play football, that’s another reason I signed, because the club’s style of play suits my own. I can’t wait to get started.”
