Posh Deaf 3 – 3 St John Reserves. Pictures and Video

Posh and St John’s Reserves played out an entertaining 3-3 draw on Sunday.

St John’s bought their bag of naughty tricks but Posh did their best to ignore it and for most of the game managed to keep focused on the game itself.

Cameron Cockerill, Posh’s enigmatic striker, bagged three more goals to add to his impressive record. Cockerill scored a penalty after the St john’s keeper needlessly shoved a Posh player in the face in full view of the referee.

Vitor Balde, Posh’s youngest player, was given 10 minutes at the end of the game to make his debut. Soon after, the St John’s left back hit Vitor with a deliberate off-the-ball blow in the back unseen by the referee. Vitor didn’t seem to care.

St John’s fantastic youngster Yasseen Miah scored a marvellous goal after a 1-2 with the very-mischievous veteran Memnos Costi to add to the two goals he scored against Posh last time around. He’s fast and accurate.

Liam Avey and Dean Connolley were made to work hard at the back but both put in a full shift and some full-bloodied challenges.
