Peterborough United

Posh's mascot

Listen online this weekend for all the Posh action in the FA Cup!

Posh face a vital FA Cup fourth round match with Notts Forest this weekend and we'll be bringing it to you live online! Catch every comment as it happens. Just click on the 'BBC Local Radio' link on the right this Saturday. Kick-off 3pm.

The Posh

Peterborough United Football Club officially came into being on 17th May 1934.

With the exception of The Second World War period when the competition was suspended, Peterborough United have hit the FA Cup trail every season since formation in 1934.

The ground capacity at London Road is 15,314.

Barry Fry's the boss!

You have to go back to 1986 to find the last time Peterborough United reached the 5th round of the FA Cup. On that occasion they lost to Brighton in a replay with the likes of Lil Fuccillo and Jackie Gallagher in their team.

The current team will aim to match their achievements this weekend when they travel to face a struggling Nottingham Forest team at the City Ground. Gary Megson has picked up the reigns with Forest on the verge of relegation, amazing when you consider their illustrious past.

Posh are aiming to stay in the League below Forest and there'll no doubt be a huge following of Blue and White travelling up the A1 and A52 to support them...

Whatever, we're broadcasting all the commentary on the Posh game this weekend for you live and online.  Just click on the 'BBC Local Radio' link on the right hand side and catch every comment.

Alternatively, tune in to BBC Radio Cambridgeshire on 96 and 95.7 FM. There is live and exclusive commentary of every Posh and U's match which can also be heard via the clubs' official websites.

Every game is followed by a fans' phone-in until 6pm. Join in on 08459 25 2000.
