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

Peterborough United have been dealt a blow ahead of the League One season after their new signing Brad Inman broke his leg in training.

The 24-year-old only joined Posh last month after leaving Crewe Alexandra.

The Australian international tweeted that he was "devastated" to have sustained the injury which is likely to keep him out for the majority of the upcoming campaign.

Northampton Town have signed Peterborough United midfielder Harry Beautyman for an undisclosed fee.

The 24-year-old has agreed a two-year deal at Sixfields.

Beautyman made 44 appearances for Posh after joining them from Welling United.

Harry is a very good addition for us.

He is a lively character and a player who has a decent amount of experience in League One. He is also a good age, who will get better and better, and I think we are signing him at a good time.

He is a box to box midfielder who creates things, makes things happen and can score a goal or two so he will add to our attacking options.

He attracted a fair amount of interest over the summer and we are pleased we have been able to bring him to the club.

– Rob Page, Northampton Town manager

Peterborough United have re-signed former striker Paul Taylor on a one-year deal.

The 28-year-old was a big hit at Posh in his first spell at the club before he was sold to Ipswich Town for £1.5 million in 2012.

Taylor has been training with Posh during pre-season after taking a year out of the professional game.

He will cover for fellow striker Lee Angol who is facing a long spell on the sidelines.

It is a great signing for us. A fit Paul Taylor is one of the best players in this league, if not beyond, so we are hopefully going to get him fit.

He has looked sharp but we obviously need to step it up fitness wise. Paul is looking forward to it and everyone is looking forward to having him at the club.

Highly-rated Peterborough United midfielder Chris Forrester has signed a new long-term contract with the club.

A number of Premier League and Championship teams have taken an interest in the talented Irishman who joined Posh from St Patrick's Athletic.

Forrester was made captain of the club earlier this week in a bid to keep him at the ABAX Stadium.

I took a punt on Chris last year and he took a punt on coming over because he took a pay cut when he came over, but I promised him that if he had a good season then we would look at his contract again.

I get on well with his agent and we have been working on the deal in the last few days and it was easy to get it done. He is one of our most coveted assets at the football club.

Chris has been excellent for us, the gaffer has named him captain of the club and him agreeing a new deal sends a real statement out there.

– Darragh MacAnthony, Peterborough United chairman

Meanwhile, Stevenage midfielder Dean Parrett has joined League One side AFC Wimbledon.
