Peterborough United’s Deaf football teams once again, courtesy of the Free Kick’s Foundation, have another season’s worth of free tickets to give away to a deaf child or young person and two companions.
The tickets have kindly been donated to Free Kicks Foundation by Talk Sport presenter and Posh Fan Adrian Durham and Jonnie Lewis
Last season, many deaf children and their families enjoyed the free tickets to the football.
The three tickets are in the lower-tier of the Family Stand and provide a great view of the whole pitch and especially the goal-mouth action in front of the Peterborough end.
If you’d like to join in the fun, please fill in the form below and we will be in touch!
Here’s some pictures of midfielder Scott Taylot at the club kit launch on Sunday plus the club video highlights of the event.
The new kit was unveiled in front of hundreds of fans at the Serpentine Green shopping centre in Hampton, Peterborough where Posh Deaf also had a stand and greeted members of public and signed autographs.
More behind the scenes footage coming soon.
Scott explains what its like being a Posh Deaf player. He is on stage with Gemma Crossland and Posh’s top announcer Ben Stephenson

The FA is hosting England Talent Days across the country, providing an opportunity for players to be introduced to the England Disability Pathway with a view to identifying the next potential England international.
Both boys and girls are eligible to take part, provided they’re between the ages of 11 and 16.
The event will consist of both a presentation and coaching sessions. There are currently SIX England squads for the following impairment groups; amputee, blind, deaf, cerebral palsy, learning disability and partially sighted.
Players will be assessed and, if successful, will be invited to a six-week England Talent Programme, which is facilitated by Northampton Town in the Community and the Northamptonshire FA.
The Northamptonshire England Talent Day will take place on Sunday 13th March 2016, at Manor School, Raunds, Wellingborough (NN9 6PA) between 11:00am and 1:00pm.
