THE lucky winner of our competition to be Peterborough United's mascot for a day was Nehemiah Goodridge, aged nine, of Doddington.

Nehemiah led the Posh out on January 26 for their Championship fixture against Preston North End, who are now led by former Peterborough boss Darren Ferguson.

And it was Ferguson who had the last laugh at London Road - because Preston won 1-0.

Nehemiah's parents correctly answered that Peterborough's leading goal scorer last season was Craig Mackail-Smith.

"We would like to thank the Cambs Times/Wisbech Standard and Peterborough United for such a wonderful night."
