Peterborough United sign a former Gillingham defender
Peterborough United have signed former Gillingham defender Emmanuel Fernandez on a two-year contract.
Fernandez (19) made his Posh debut in today’s (July 10) 8-0 friendly win at Bedford Town. The teenager was a youth team player at Gillingham, but was released last summer. He played for Ramsgate Town last season.
Posh manager Darren Ferguson said: “We brought Emmanuel in from Ramsgate last season. He has a lot to learn yet, but he’s a good size, he’s quick and he’s good on the ball so he ticks a lot of boxes. He has plenty to learn tactically, but there’s plenty there to work on.”
Fernandez is likely to be used in the new Posh under 23 side next season.
