Posh Deaf 3 – 0 Charlton Athletic R.

Posh Deaf racked up their third win of the season and first of 2016 with a below-par performance over Charlton Athletic Reserves on Sunday.

Qadeer Hussain won a penalty for the Posh in the first-half which Cameron Cockerill converted. Cockerill again scored from the spot to make it 15 goals for the season.


Will Rolls was sent off on 60 minutes after an altercation with a Charlton player before Alex Tovey found some space in the crowded box and buried the ball after a corner.

It was also the first time in the league that Peterborough kept a clean sheet.

Posh remain fourth in the table with 4 games remaining. Next up the team travel to Brighton where they’ll be hoping for three more points in the hunt for a top-three finish.

Thanks to Donna Taylor for the excellent pictures

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.

Peterborough’s next game is against Fulham in the English Deaf Cup Quarter Final
