Posh Head To Ireland For Pre-Season Tour
Peterborough United have announced details of their tour to the Republic of Ireland during the pre-season.
For the first time under the ownership of Irish Chairman Darragh MacAnthony, Peterborough United are set to tour the Republic of Ireland as part of their pre-season training.
The first team and youth team squads will fly out to Dublin on Monday, 1st July before playing fixtures on the 2nd and 3rd of July.
Shelbourne will be first to host Posh with the first team match kicking off at 7:45pm before UCD (University College Dublin) host Posh at the same time on the next day.
The Shelbourne match will take place at the Tolka Park Stadium [pictured below] in Dublin with ticket prices set to £10 for adults, £7 for students and £5 for Children and OAP`s.
Shelbourne are half-way through their league season which runs from February until October but they currently sit bottom of the Eircom League with just six points from their sixteen matches having won just one match this season so far! That one solitary victory came against UCD who are 9th in the league of twelve teams.
Ticket details have yet to be released for the UCD match which will take place at the Bellfield Bowl[pictured below] in Dublin.
The youth team will also take on both sides youth teams earlier in the day. Details of these matches will be confirmed nearer the time.
Posh will then return home on Saturday 6th July before playing their first home pre-season match at 3pm on Saturday 13th July against QPR.
