The team qualified after winning the national tournament earlier this year with a dominant display in Birmingham.

Now they’re looking for support from Posh fans to help cover the £5,500 cost of the trip.

Coordinator of the Deaf Football Team and Chair of The Peterborough United Foundation Andrew Palmer said: “I think we’ve got a real chance of doing well in Warsaw. We do need help funding the trip so I’m appealing for any Peterborough United supporters or people who just want to see the team do well to make a donation on our online fundraising page.”
