The Posh Supporters Trust (PST) are celebrating their 15th Year as a trust and we are proud to celebrate it with them.

In 2003 PST was formed against the backdrop of frustration surrounding Peterborough United Football Club. The club had been on the market for 18 months and the threat of administration was ever looming during the formation of the trust.

Since their creation, PST has navigated several scenarios including successfully lobbying against a planning permission to demolish one ‘end’ of the football ground to building an online museum to ensure memories of the club are never forgotten and fans are able to enjoy the history of the club for years to come.

The trust has set up several initiatives to serve the community including the SMILE ticket scheme which awards free match tickets to deserving people in the local community.
PST has, along with other Posh fan groups, also funded the cost of a wheelchair enclosure for less abled supporters.

The tireless work of the volunteers at the supporters trust is second to none and we look forward to the next fifteen years working alongside them.
