Chairman Darragh MacAnthony is convinced Peterborough United are about to embark on the three most successful years of his time at the club.

And that’s some statement from a man who has masterminded back-to-back promotions, a play-off final win at Old Trafford and a Wembley win in his nine years at the club.

MacAnthony insists he and manager Graham Westley are men on a mission.

“We have a masterplan,” MacAnthony enthused. “I’m certain we are about to enjoy the best three years we’ve had in my time at the club.

“In three years we want to do the impossible. We want to develop into a Championship club and then try and go one step further.

“The talent at our disposal is incredible. The football in the first 45 minutes at Gillingham last weekend was some of the best I’ve seen.

“We are trying to develop our own brand of football. We are putting down building blocks.

“I know some see us as lacking ambition, but nothing could be further from the truth.

“We not so much a selling club as a forward-thinking club.

“The manager is a winner and I am a winner.”

MacAnthony also revealed, during an interview with the club’s media team, that Posh will enter a side in an under 21 league next season to help the development of the club’s younger players.”

Posh have dropped to eighth place in League One after back-to-back defeats against Gillingham and Burton. They travel to West Brom for an FA Cup tie on Saturday (January 30).
