Peterborough United’s Deaf team recorded their second win and first against a hearing team last night with a 2-1 win over Cardea Reserves.
The result marked the progress of the team who has previously been on the receiving end of heavy defeats to Cardea, each time conceding 5 goals and led to scenes of celebration.
Cardea were in control of large periods of the game and Posh had to defend resolutely and in doing so showed the progress that has been made.
Cardea scored first but Peterborough remained positive and equalised and took the lead when Cameron Cockerill made the most of two Cardea mistakes late on. Cameron has scored seven goals in five games for Posh so far.
Dean Connoley was man of the match for a brilliant defensive performance and Liam Avey, wearing the captain’s armband for the first time, impressed with his new responsibility. He also allowed very little past him on the right.
Youngster Will Palmer was given his debut with ten minutes remaining.
