Neale and his long-time business partner Stewart ‘Randy’ Thompson joined forces with chairman Darragh MacAnthony just three years ago and now they can look forward to Championship football at London Road for the first time since 2013.

Dr Neale said: “It was one of the best days of my life. We enjoyed a long socially distant celebration afterwards.

Peterborough has gone through some tough times. The football club we believe was robbed of promotion by points per game last season and the town has also suffered from the loss of companies like Thomas Cook and John Lewis.

“But we have always been made to feel very welcome by the fans and our relationship with them is probably the opposite of what Manchester United are experiencing.

“We love our fans and we were delighted to be able to celebrate with them on Saturday.”

Mr Thompson added: “I’ll admit to wanting to sell the club and leave London Road at minute 64, but by the end, I just felt blessed to be there and see it live.”

Posh fell 3-0 down to promotion rivals Lincoln City early in the second-half before scoring three times in the final 25 minutes to secure a top two finish.
