Hi vis mix-up spells confusion for Posh

Peterborough United's bright yellow away kit led to a moment of confusion when Michael Bostwick passed the ball to a steward on the touchline instead of a team mate.

The moment came during Posh's game with Northampton on Saturday, but it won't have worried Peterborough too much, they won 1-0.

But it did prompt this amusing response on Twitter.

Peterborough United striker Joe Gormley has quit professional football.

The Northern Irishman is currently on loan at SPL side St Johnstone but has struggled to make an impact after joining them in the summer transfer window.

He has now grown disillusioned with his lack of first team action and has told Posh he wants to walk away from the game.

Gormley moved to Peterborough from semi-professional side Cliftonville for £50,000 in 2015, but almost immediately suffered a cruciate knee ligament injury.

His luck hasn't changed north of the border and he's now back training with his former club in his homeland.

The important thing here is Joe’s wellbeing and it is clear he does not wish to continue playing full time football.

Having already turned out for Peterborough United and ourselves that is not an option this season in any case.

It’s always been our aim to do what’s best for the player and that’s what we are attempting to do.

– Tommy Wright, St Johnstone manager

Next week's local derby between Peterborough United and Northampton Town has been made all-ticket for home supporters.

The decision was made on safety advice due to the large traveling support coming from Northampton.

The match at the ABAX Stadium will take place next Tuesday (18 October).

Northampton are close to selling out their total allocation, which includes part of the Motorpoint Stand, and as a result, the decision was taken on safety advice to make the game all-ticket for home supporters too.

This is to ensure that the stadium is a safe environment for Peterborough United and Northampton Town fans to enjoy what should be an entertaining local derby.

Peterborough United have signed Barnsley midfielder George Moncur on loan until January.

Posh were hoping to sign the 23-year-old from Colchester United earlier in the summer but he chose to head to Yorkshire instead.

However, he has now ended up at the ABAX Stadium after all.

I am really pleased. Obviously we tried to get him in the summer but the boy wanted to test himself in the Championship which is fair enough. We are delighted to have him on board.

He scored 14-15 goals in a side that was relegated last season and that speaks volumes for him. He is only going to add to our attacking threat.

– Grant McCann, Peterborough United Manager

Meanwhile, Peterborough United left-back Kgosi Ntlhe has moved to Stevenage on a permanent basis.
