GED'S GESTURE

OWNER Ged Rathbone is ready to reward his most loyal supporters with heavily discounted entry for the biggest Peterborough meeting of the season. The 'T Balfe Construction' Panthers take on Glasgow in the first leg of an SGB Championship KO Cup semi-final on Sunday at the East of England Arena (5pm).

And the club's army of season-ticket holders will be able to watch the mouth-watering showdown against the Tigers for just £10.

"Our number of season-ticket holders has gone up year-on-year and I'm very grateful to those fans for their fabulous support," said Rathbone. "I feel it is only eight to reward their loyal backing by giving them the opportunity to see our biggest and most important meeting of the season at a reduced rate. They fully deserve it and this is my way of saying a big thank-you to each person who has a season ticket. Hopefully they will all turn out on Sunday. We desperately want to win another trophy and we need everyone behind us on a big day for the club."

That fantastic £10 entry offer is also open to supporters able to produce admission tickets from the club's final three SGB Championship home meetings of the season. They are a September 26 victory over Scunthorpe, the October 6 triumph against Workington and a date against Edinburgh at the East of England Arena this Friday (October 13th, 7.30pm).

"Once again my thanks goes out to the fans who have turned out to get behind the boys at a stage of the season when we have only really been racing for pride in the league," added Rathbone. "We made no secret of the fact that we wanted to challenge for a play-off spot this year, but that didn't materialise due to a number of factors. The season could easily have faded out, but the boys have been in tremendous form of late as we attempt to finish as high as we possibly can in the table. Fifth place is now within reach if we can beat Edinburgh and that's the aim before we turn our attention to winning another piece of silverware in the KO Cup. If we can do that, then 2017 will go down as one of the club's best seasons."

The second leg of the semi-final has been confirmed for Tuesday (October 17) at Peugeot Ashfield Stadium.
