Peterborough's JPT win will be commemorated by a Wembley Stone

Wembley is set to immortalise Peterborough United’s success in lifting the Johnstone's Paint Trophy for the first time in the club’s history with a stone on Wembley Way. 

Posh lifted the trophy after beating Chesterfield 3-1 on Sunday thanks to goals from Josh McQuoid, Shaun Brisley and Britt Assombalonga and that achievement will be commemorated by a stone on Wembley Way, adjacent to the Bobby Moore statue outside the stadium. 

On Wednesday Peterborough Chairman Darragh MacAnthony and Manager Darren Ferguson were presented with a replica for the club to keep as its own souvenir and the stone was supported by a letter of congratulation from F.A. Chairman Greg Dyke.

He said: “Reaching a show piece occasion at the National Stadium is always a tremendous experience for all involved, but victory ensures that it becomes an unforgettable occasion and I'm sure the day will live long in the memories of your players, staff and supporters.

"I am delighted to confirm that football supporters visiting Wembley from across the country and the world will soon be reminded of your success, as we shall be laying a commemorative stone into the Wembley Way project.

“I trust it will provide a permanent reminder of your memorable day and of the club's place in a Wembley roll call to be enjoyed by many generations in the future.”

The Wembley Way scheme will develop into a historic walkway to honour achievements, events and legends from Wembley Stadium's past, present and future.
