The 23-year-old Irish midfielder has only been at Posh for 10 months, but new Posh boss Grant McCann insists he has made a sound choice.

McCann said: “Chris is not the most vocal of men, but his temperament and his character are attributes I feel will make him a good leader. When he speaks the rest of the team tends to listen.”

Forrester was a proud man to be handed the captain’s armband. He said: “It’s a new challenge and one that I am relishing.
