It is exciting times for Posh fans with seven new signings already through the door.

Barnsley, Burton and Sunderland have all dropped down to League One for the 2018/19 season after being relegated from the Championship, while Accrington Stanley, Coventry City, Luton Town and Wycombe Wanders were all promoted from League Two last season.

The League One season is set to kick off on Saturday, August 4, and the regular season is scheduled to end on May 4, 2019, with the playoffs following that.

New changes to the transfer window will also come into force during the 2018/19 season with the summer window set to close five days after the start of the season on Thursday, August 9 - instead of at the end of the month.

Clubs will however still be able to make loan signings until August 31.

Goalline technology will also be used for the first time during the League One and League Two playoff semi-finals and final at the end of the season.
