Peterborough United have signed Alex Woodyard on two-year deal from Lincoln City.

The 25-year-old joins Posh for an undisclosed fee after two seasons at Sincil Bank.

The midfielder has made over 100 appearances for Lincoln and featured in the Imps' run to the League Two play-offs this season.

There is no doubt that the signing of Alex Woodyard represents the best signing in League One to date in the close season activity.

Lincoln City have had the most wonderful two years all bar missing out on promotion via the play-offs last season.

It is fair to say that many people at Lincoln City and outside Lincoln City would describe Alex as their best player and that comes down to performances.

Meanwhile, Stevenage have signed former Luton Town captain Scott Cuthbert on a two-year deal, and Cambridge United have completed a permanent move for former loanee George Taft.

Peterborough United striker Jack Marriott has been nominated for the EFL League One player of the month award for March.

The in-form forward hit five goals in as many matches last month - including a last minute winner versus Bury and an equaliser at Rotherham.

He's helped guide his team back into the Play-Off places. He's up against Fleetwood's Alex Cairns, Chey Dunkley of Wigan and former Ipswich Town player Brett Pitman who's now with Portsmouth.

Staying in League One, MK Dons boss Dan Micciche has been nominated for the manager of the month award. He's up against Wigan's Paul Cook, Fleetwood's John Sheridan and Keith Hill of Rochdale.

Both awards are announced on Friday.
