Premier League side West Ham will provide the glamour opposition in Peterborough United’s pre-season schedule.

The Hammers will visit the ABAX Stadium on Saturday, July 11 (3pm kick off) when they will under new management following the departure of Sam Allardyce at the end of last season. The Londoners will already have returned to competitive action by then as they qualified for the Europa League by topping the Premier League’s ‘Fairplay’ table.

It’s a pleasing fixture for Posh assistant manager Grant McCann who started his professional career at West Ham and for new Posh signing Jack Collison who played over 100 games for the club.

Ticket details for the game will be announced in due course.

Posh have so far confirmed fixtures at Dulwich Hamlet (away, July 8), Barnet (away, July 21) and Ipswich Town (home, July 25) with a couple of other games still to be confirmed including a re-arranged date for the friendly at Bishop’s Stortford which was due to take place on July 11.
