Peterborough United first team coach Aaron McLean has announced he is leaving the club.

Mclean tweeted: "It is with regret that my time at Peterborough United has come to an end."

Peterborough Director of Football Barry Fry had previously said that some cuts would have to be made as he club tries to get through the coronavirus crisis.

Posh were dealt a huge blow earlier this week when clubs voted to end the League One season - a decision which saw them drop out of the play-offs via the points per game method.

McLean had a number of successful seasons at Peterborough as a player, forming a potent strike partnership with Craig Mackail-Smith.

He signed a three-year deal to return to the club as first team coach in May 2019.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Mclean said he was "eternally grateful" for all the support he'd received during his time at the Weston Homes Stadium.

Head Analyst Sean O’Callaghan has also left the club.

“I would like to thank Aaron and Sean for their efforts on behalf of the football club. Sean was in employment on my arrival back to the club and has been an important member of the backroom staff in his role," manager Darren Ferguson said.

“Aaron is a legend of the football club and will always be a legend of this football club.

"Unfortunately, in today’s climate, tough decisions have to be made for the long-term benefit of the football club. I wish both well in the future.”
