Midfielder Reece Brown made 38 appearances for Posh in the League One promotion season of 20-21 after joining on loan from Huddersfield Town. He had shorter loan spells at London Road in the seasons either side of that promotion campaign.

And on Thursday the 26 year-old left Huddersfield for Forest Green Rovers on a free transfer after his contract at the Championship squad expiried. Forest Green sold Brown to Huddersfield for a sizeable fee in July, 2019, but he never made a single Football League appearance for the Yorkshire club.

Forest Green won the League Two title last season and are due to visit Posh on September 10 for a League One game. Posh make their first ever trip to Forest Green on February 4.

Other ex-Posh men to move to a League One club this summer are striker Callum Morton who has joined Fleetwood Town from West Bromwich Albion and central defender Dominic Ball who has moved to Ipswich Town from QPR.
