Schoolar takes charge at Peterborough
14th October 2017


Will Schoolar has been hired as the new manager of Peterborough, confirming speculation that he would leave Wrexham.

Thirty-two year-old Schoolar is said to be relishing his new role at London Road and has already turned his attentions to the match against Southend on Saturday 14th October.

Wrexham will now be looking for a new manager. Wrexham will be paid £70K in compensation for Schoolar.

Schoolar, a Vanarama National League Manager of the Year winner in 2017, brings a blend of experience and proven credentials with him to his new job.

Despite pre-season hopes of a top-half finish, Peterborough have now lost three league games in a row and find themselves in 23rd place in the Sky Bet League One table. Peterborough have lost four of their last five games in the league

Southend match reaction
14th October 2017


We sat down earlier this evening with new Peterborough United manager Will Schoolar after his first game in charge, a strong 3-0 win over Southend United at Roots Hall.

Vital Posh: Firstly, welcome to Peterborough! Just a couple of hours after signing your contract, you took your first game in charge. How did it all unfold?

Will Schoolar: Well today has been a blur. We've been talking to the board about my appointment for a few days, and for it to all unfold today has been quite remarkable. It was a bit of a shock to the system going from planning for the weekend with Wrexham, to being thrust into the firing line here. It's been fantastic fun though and the result was brilliant!

VP: You had a fantastic spell at Wrexham, which convinced the Peterborough board that you were the right man to come in to replace Steven Pressley here. Was it a tough call to move?

WS: It was always going to be tough to consider leaving Wrexham. They gave me an opportunity when I was in a good run at Gainsborough Trinity, and we had so much success in a short time in Wales. Our run to the FA Cup Third round was great for the fans and us financially, and pipping Forest Green to the title to get promoted back to the league was simply fantastic.

I was building something at Wrexham that was a big project, but when I sat down with Darragh MacAnthony, I knew the job here was a project I wanted to be involved in. I thank Wrexham for everything, and they are a club who I will continue to follow.


VP: So onto the job in hand here, we are currently 23rd in the league even after today's results, what are the short term and long term goals?

WS: Firstly, we are aiming for a top half finish this season, and that is the minimum we expect with a large portion of the season still to come. With games coming thick and fast, and a transfer window looming in January, we have an opportunity to sort things out here and ensure a bright future for the fans.

Financially, we need to do some work to get our house in order after Steven's departure, where the wage budget was stretched with a very large squad. We won't lose players on the cheap, and we won't be frugal, but we have to make sure that every pound is spent in the right place.

Both myself and the chairman see this club as one who develops young players, play attacking football, and we both have aspirations to take this club to a higher level. This season we need to put building blocks in place, and then we can go from there.


VP: Finally, you take charge of your first game at London Road next up, with Coventry City visiting. There is no secret that you support the Sky Blues, will that add anything to what will be a big occasion?

WS: These things tend to happen in football don't they. It'll be great to get in front of the home fans, and I am looking forward to it. The fact that it's against Coventry will give it an interesting edge, but at the end of the day we need three points!

Sky Bet League One: Peterborough United 4 - 0 Coventry City
18th October 2017


What posed to be a close-fought game at London Road ended in a one-sided result as Peterborough United defeated Coventry City 4-0.

Full-back Max Lowe suffered the ignominy of scoring an embarrassing own goal in the 42nd minute.

Bostwick converted from the spot after Lowe gave away a penalty for tripping his opponent inside the box. Stanislas scored with a close range finish which was timed impeccably in the 85th minute to extend the lead further.

Winger Marcus Maddison completed the rout with a deflected fierce shot on 88 minutes.

Despite pre-season hopes of a top-half finish in the league, Peterborough currently find themselves in 21st place in the Sky Bet League One table. Peterborough have won three of their last five home league game.

21st October 2017


Junior Stanislas' goal helped Peterborough move out of the relegation zone after a 3-2 victory over Northampton on a wet afternoon at Sixfields Stadium.

Northampton captain Marc Richards gave Northampton the lead with a good header from just inside the six-yard box in the 27th minute.

Peterborough's equaliser came through Junior Stanislas as he seized on Alex Revell's mistake to score a close range finish into the bottom right corner. Deep-lying forward Lee Angol then put Peterborough in front after 72 minutes with a good header from just inside the six-yard box.

Defensive forward Sam Hoskins then equalised for Northampton in the 88th minute with a placed shot into the bottom corner. Better late than never for Northampton and the fans were clearly delighted with Hoskins' impact.

Winger Marcus Maddison then clinched a late winner on 89 minutes with a close range finish into the bottom left corner. Maddison's impact delighted the fans with his late goal.

Sky Bet League One: Preston North End 1 - 3 Peterborough United
24th October 2017


Preston North End succumbed to a 3-1 loss in this evening's Sky Bet League One clash at Deepdale. A brace from Lee Angol helped Peterborough to victory.

Winger Callum Robinson gave Preston the lead with a deftly executed finish from close range in the 45th minute. Deep-lying forward Lee Angol then equalised for Peterborough in the 70th minute with a close range finish into the bottom left corner. An error from Preston's Scott Wootton allowed Angol to score a placed shot from close range.

The Peterborough fans might have been forgiven for thinking that would have been that but the scoring wasn't over. Winger Marcus Maddison finally rounded off their victory on 88 minutes with a well timed close range finish.

Peterborough find themselves occupying 17th place in the Sky Bet League One table but hopes of a top-half finish have been boosted by four straight league wins. Peterborough have won three of their last five away games in the league.

Sky Bet League One: Peterborough United 0 - 1 Oxford United
28th October 2017


After appearing to just have the edge in this hard-fought battle, Peterborough United's players and fans will be very disappointed to have lost 1-0 to an Oxford United team they consider to be their equal.

With the game nearing an end, it was Ryan Seager who scored a placed shot from close range to give Oxford the lead on 90 minutes. Seager's impact delighted the fans with his late goal.

Despite pre-season hopes of a top-half finish in the league, Peterborough currently find themselves in 20th place in the Sky Bet League One table. Peterborough have lost three of their last five home league game.

FA Cup: Peterborough United 1 - 0 Worcester City
5th November 2017


Peterborough United showed their superiority in a 1-0 victory over Worcester City during their English FA Cup First Round game at London Road, but they could and should have scored more.

Worcester captain Graham Hutchison was left red-faced in the 76th minute following an embarrassing own goal.

Checkatrade Trophy: Peterborough United 1 - 1 Wycombe Wanderers
(Penalties: 3-2)

7th November 2017


Wycombe enjoyed a considerable size advantage, weighing on average 6 kg more per player, but were unable to overcome their lighter opponents, perhaps proving that on a wet evening at London Road at least, brains are more important than brawn.

Target man Hakeem Araba gave Wycombe the lead with a good header from just inside the six-yard box in the 26th minute. With Peterborough staring at defeat, there was controversy as central defender Michael Bostwick then had a penalty shout turned down.

Winger Marcus Maddison equalised for Peterborough after 69 minutes with an incisive finish from 16 metres. In the shootout that followed it turned out to be heartache for Wycombe as wing-back Reuben Noble-Lazarus missed the final penalty.

League One: Blackpool 2 - 1 Peterborough United
11th November 2017

Young winger Kellan Gordon then equalised for Blackpool in the 74th minute with a close range effort. Target man Danny Philliskirk then clinched a late winner on 82 minutes with an incisive finish into the bottom right corner from 11 metres.
