Wisbech Town FC teenager Jack Friend has been accepted into the Peterborough United Academy.

Club press officer Spencer Larham announced the confirmation on the club’s website after the striker had completed a trial with the local League One side.

The 16-year-old joined the “Posh” Academy side for training and during his three-week spell played against Southend United.

Joint Fenmen boss Paul Cousins said that the goal Friend recently scored was one the best he had seen at the Elgood’s Fenland Stadium.

Wisbech host Long Buckby in the UCL Premier on Saturday.
