New midfielder Jack Collison will manage the Peterborough United under 21 side this season.

Collison will also take charge of the last friendly of pre-season at Bishop’s Stortford tomorrow (August 4, 7.45pm kick-off).

First-team manager Dave Robertson said: “Jack will be in charge of the team for the friendly at Bishop’s Stortford as part of his own coaching role and his own development while he is doing his coaching badges with the PFA. It will be a good experience for him. Jack will also take our under 21s throughout the season. All of our players who are not playing on a Saturday will get their minutes in those under 21 fixtures.

“Tomorrow is an opportunity for us to play everybody who needs minutes. We will not be taking the game lightly. Bishop’s Stortford have a good squad, I have known their manager for quite a while and they have taken quite a few of our players on loan down the years. We have a good relationship with them and we will look to continue that.

Former Stortford player Kyle Vassell will skipper Posh, while out-of-favour Turkish midfielder Erhun Oztumer will start.

Admission for the game is £10 for adults, £6 for concessions and £4 for students and under-16s. Accompanied under-12s are admitted free.
