Peterborough United: Club Profile
Posh gave us megabucks for George Boyd, then sent us packing from the League Cup when we first actually met; a 4-3 thriller the result in August 2011. We also traded blows during the 2013-4 League One campaign too, but it doesn’t look as if Posh will be falling into League Two any time soon. That’ll explain why it took a chance FA Cup Round One draw to pair us together once again in late 2019.

Facilities for Disabled Fans:
There are plenty of spaces for supporters requiring the use of wheelchairs, with spaces for carers too. However, the club does advise that these come with "limited facilities".
The club works in partnership with Soccer Sight to assist those with visual impairments, and Guide Dogs are allowed into the stadium; it is recommended that you contact the Posh ahead of the game to ensure arrangements can be made in terms of ground facilities and Guide Dog welfare.
Like many other clubs, there is an induction loop for supporters with hearing difficulties and Peterborough United also ensure that supporters with ambulant disabilities or infirmities are catered for with regards to providing seating that is close to exits or are accessible without the need for stairs.
For more information, call the ticket office on 01733 865674.
The Cherry Tree is a 15-minute walk away from the ground on Oundle Road and is regarded as a place where both home and away fans are welcome. With the centre of Peterborough not so far away, you will also have the opportunity to sample some of the hostelries there so you certainly won't be spoilt for choice when visiting.
Travel Information – Distance: 54 miles
As you might probably imagine, it is pretty straightforward to get from Stevenage to Peterborough by car. Heading north on the A1(M), exit at Junction 17 for Fletton Parkway (A1139) towards Wisbech. After approximately 2.7 miles, use the A1260 ramp signposted for A15/City Centre/Yaxley/Sleaford and then take the first exit at the roundabout for Nene Parkway (A1260).
Take the exit for Orton Malborne and then take the third exit at the roundabout for Morley Way. Continue over the next roundabout you come to and after about a mile, take the first exit at the roundabout for Celta Road. Shortly afterwards, you'll want to bear left for London Road (A15) and continue along. London Road stadium will be visible in front of you, just after the railway bridge.
You cannot park at the ground if you are an away supporter, but there is a local authority-run pay and display car park just off London Road if you turn left at the traffic lights into Oundle Road. If you head further up Oundle Road, you might find some street parking on side streets, but do check restrictions if taking up this option as there are some residents only schemes in operation.

It will take you around 20-30 minutes to walk from Peterborough's train station. Exit the station from the main entrance and head towards the A15. Turn right and head across the large roundabout in front of you so that you remain on the A15. Before you get to the next roundabout, turn right towards Bridge Street and the River Nene. Cut through and rejoin the A15 to cross the river - this will become London Road and the ground will be ahead of you.
