Dave Robertson has been confirmed as the new manager of Peterborough United.

The former soldier has just signed a three year deal with the club alongside Grant McCann as assistant manager.

Club chairman Darragh MacAnthony told the club's website:

The new management team are well aware I yearn for winning a title, yearn for healthy cup runs, yearn for goals galore and ultimately to be entertained with the style of football we play. The club has invested nearly £200k in a new pitch for the upcoming season, one I’m told will be up there with the best of them and with our recruitment process well under way, I have no doubt success will follow and next season could and should indeed be one of our best yet.
