The band first released the club’s Wembley song ahead of the 2014 Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final, in which Posh beat Chesterfield 3-1, using Billy Joel’s ‘We Didn’t Start The Fire’ as a base.

Ahead of Posh’s latest final appearance in the same competition, the lyrics have been given a refresh to reflect what has happened to the club in the following ten years.

All of the proceeds from the single will be donated to the Free Kicks Foundation. The charity has already helped to raise over £5000 to buy 32 families (110 people) tickets and travel to the final to fans who might not otherwise have been able to afford it.

Among the updated lyrics are: “Ten years on, we’re back again. Since then we’ve seen come gems, Jonno, Szmodics, EMC, Ivan Toney and Ronnie.

"Fergie left, Grant come in with Robertson in between, Westley, Evans, lessons learnt before our king returned.

"2020, games we’re stopped we’re on form on the up, nine games left to do the job, the EFL pulled the plug.

"Sammie’s down in the box, Jonno wins it from the spot, car park full of blue and white, Posh are back and we’re on fire.”

Singer Ben Gooch said: “Getting all five of us back together was so fun, the laughs that we’ve had recording the song and doing the video has been brilliant.

“We hope people don’t just stream it but buy it as well because all great proceeds are going to a great cause.”

A spokesperson for the FreeKicks Foundation said: “A huge thank you to the team at Posh for all their help on projects leading up to this final.

"Now we can all look forward to a great day out on Sunday.”

The song is available on all major streaming platforms and the full music video can be viewed at
