It’s been a few years since Posh sold a player to a Scottish team and now it’s like waiting for a bus. You wait ages then along come two (or rather two depart)!
On the same day former Posh captain Chris Forrester was snapped up by Scottish Premier League runners-up Aberdeen, rookie right-back Alex Penny also made the trip north of the border to Hamilton Academical.
Penny, who spent time in the V9 Academy, only played a handful of games for Posh as a right-back but he can also play as a central defender. Less than a year after signing for Posh, the former Nuneaton Town defender has penned a two-year deal with the Accies after an undisclosed fee was agreed between the two clubs.
The Accies finished last season one place above the relegation places, on goal difference, in the Scottish Premier League, 37 points behind Forresters new team!
“Alex is quick, strong and has the athleticism to operate at centre back, full-back or wing back,” Accies manager Martin Canning told the Hamilton website.
“He has experience of League One football in England and is of an age where we believe he can develop further here in the Scottish Premiership with Hamilton Accies.”
Like Forrester, this could be an excellent move for the 21-year-old and we wish him well.
