Chris Forrester has been named BBC Radio Cambridgeshire's Peterborough United Player of the Year after an excellent debut season for the League One side.

The former St Pat's midfielder appeared 34 times for the Posh, scoring twice over the course of the season. 

Forrester made his debut for Peterborough last September after his move from the League of Ireland and has put in a number of impressive performances.

"Chris has been a revelation this season,” caretaker boss Grant McCann told the Peterborough Telegraph.

"Considering he’s played two full seasons (one in Ireland) without a break, he’s done exceptionally well.

"He came across as a winger, but I could see in training how clever he is and what a range of passing he has so I got him to play a bit deeper."
