Peterborough United midfielder Grant McCann has left the club on a free transfer.

The 34-year-old has joined Linfield in his home country of Northern Ireland.

McCann made nearly 200 appearances in his time at Posh and captained them to promotion to The Championship back in 2011.

"I have thoroughly enjoyed my four and a half years with Peterborough United. I have had some good times and some low times, but those good times have definitely overshadowed any low moments.

I just want to thank everyone, the players, the staff, the management team and everyone connected with the club. They have been first class with me and made me and my family extremely welcome."

There was late drama in second round of the FA Cup as Colchester and Peterborough met this afternoon.

A tight game came to life in the 88th minute, when Sanchez Watt fouled Michael Bostwick to give Peterborough a penalty - but Aaron McLean's spot kick was saved by Colchester keeper Sam Walker.

And with just two minutes of injury time left, Colchester's George Moncur won it for the U's, to book their place in the third round draw.
