Whatever happened to Peterborough United’s local lads apart from winning the FA Cup, signing for Manchester United and Arsenal, and becoming a coach at Manchester City?

There is nothing more satisfying than seeing Peterborough lads play for Peterborough United.

We’ve had many Posh greats come through the club’s Academy set-up like current youth team bossess Simon Davies and Matthew Etherington, but they were born in Wales and Cornwall respectively.

Here we are remembering those players who were born in the Peterborough Telegraph circulation area and who went on to play for their local professional club.

One went on to win an FA Cup winners medal, another moved to Manchester United for £500k after just two Posh appearances and another was snapped up by Arsenal after a handful of games for his hometown club.

Others had more modest careers in the lower divisions, but still proudly put Peterborough on the map.

We’ve listed our top 10 in no particular order and, thanks to the brilliant recall ability of our readers listed a whole bunch of other local boys who played for Posh.

Famous Posh fan TalkSPORT host Adrian Durham said: “Micky Gynn was the most successful, but Mark Heeley was the most talented local boy to play for Posh.”
