League One side Peterborough United have signed Nuneaton Town defender Alex Penny for an undisclosed fee on a three-year contract.

The 20-year-old former Hull City youth player had been on trial with the League One side and played in Tuesday's pre-season friendly game with Ipswich.

Penny's fee is a record received for National League North side Nuneaton.

"When I heard that Peterborough wanted me to sign, it was an easy decision to make," Penny told the club website.

"I want to be playing football and I will work extremely hard to try and break into the team here."
