2.25pm: Peterborough United owner Darragh MacAnthony said at Friday’s AGM he will not pay any more rent on the club’s stadium to Peterborough City Council.

Speaking at the Posh AGM, Mr MacAnthony said that he pays £500,000-a-year to the council to rent London Road, which he thinks is too high for a stadium of its condition.

He said that discussions were ongoing with the council, but maintains that the rent levels are much higher than clubs of a similar level whose grounds are owned by local authorities.
