While their heroes are tackling a Spurs XI at the ABAX Stadium, a team of Posh fans will be taking part in a far more competitive set of matches.

The Peterborough United Supporters Football Club (PUSFC) are once again competing in the annual WorldNet event in Preston.

The competition attracts over 40 teams from all over the UK every year and the Posh boys are determined to give a decent account of themselves.

Manager Rob Graves said: “This is our seventh appearance at WorldNET, and the squad are raring to go.

“We’ve been drawn in a tough group though alongside Grimsby, AFC Wimbledon, and the very strong hosts Preston North End.

“We’ve also got to say a huge ‘thank you’ to Posh, since they’ve ensured we’ll look the part by providing us with two full playing kits to wear over the weekend.”

The size of the fans’ task can be found in a result from a couple of seasons ago when Preston beat them 12-1 at Bushfields!

The tournament is organised by the Internet Football Association (IFA) which was founded in 1996.

The IFA is made up of football supporters who belong to internet mailing lists, websites and message boards.

Teams will compete in group matches on Saturday, with their results sending them through to the knockout stages of either the WorldNET Cup or WorldNET Plate on Sunday.

Posh play regular fixtures throughout the season and anyone interested in playing can contact the team on Twitter at @PUFSC.
