GALLERY: Tommy's banners proudly on display at Posh ground

Huge flags marking the life of a Posh legend were proudly on display at Weston Homes Stadium, even if the fans could not enjoy it.

An appeal was launched to fund a giant banner for Peterborough United top appearance maker Tommy Robson, who passed away on October 8. 

Thanks to photographs from Terry Harris, the design skills of Be Water Creative, and the many fundraising campaigns set up by wellwishers, the giant brilliant banners depicting scenes from Tommy's life were in place for Posh's 2-0 win over Oxford United.

A moment of silence was held for the great man before the first home match since his death, who made a club-record 559 appearances and received the freedom of Peterborough in July.

The Posh stadium is currently bereft of fans due to Covid-19, like every other league ground in the country - but fans can watch the match on a screen inside the ground. A number of six-person tables were set up for the serving food and drinks inside the ground, while the match took place a matter of yards way.

City MPs Shailesh Vara and Paul Bristow are appealing for fans to be let into stadiums, amid fears of clubs going out of business with a lack of revenue. 

In addition a campaign to raise money for a statue outside the ground, similar to the Chris Turner statue, is gathering pace.
