Peterborough Lions have today (December 15) signed an international prop forward.

Alex Ioannou, a 26 year-old forward who plays internationally for Cyprus, has joined the ambitious Bretton-based club from near-neighbours Spalding.

He made his international debut in 2012 and last month played in a 30-10 win over Andorra in the European Nations Cup which set a new world record of 24 consecutive wins.

Ioannou is set to make his Lions debut in Saturday’s National league Division Three match against Lichfield at Bretton Park (2.15pm kick-off).

Spalding play in Midlands Division One East and are still looking for their first win of the season. On Saturday they crashed to a 91-0 defeat at Bedford Athletic.
