Peterborough United defender Mark Little brought along the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy they won at Wembley on March 30 to Neale-Wade Sports Centre in March.

Over the Easter holidays, about 70 children aged 4-12 took part in five Peterborough United fun days run by qualified coaches at the Neale-Wade Sports Centre and Thomas Clarkson Academy in Wisbech.

The days were organised by the Peterborough United Foundation with the support of Fenland District Council’s sports development team.
