Darren Ferguson pens new Peterborough United deal

5 June 2014

Peterborough United manager Darren Ferguson has signed a new three-year contract.

Ferguson has led the club to three promotions but was unable to add a fourth to his CV last season as Posh fell short of their aim of making an immediate return to the Sky Bet Championship as they were beaten by Leyton Orient in the play-off semi-finals.

However, the 42-year-old did deliver some silverware during the 2013/14 campaign as Peterborough defeated League Two side Chesterfield at Wembley in March to lift the Johnstone's Paint Trophy.

After putting pen to paper on his new deal, Ferguson told the club's official website: "I am delighted to be signing a new three-year contract with the club a fter lengthy talks between the chairman and I regarding the future and where we both wanted to take the club, and him showing me such support again gave me great belief of where the future lay.

"I explained my vision of how we continue to be a success both in the development of our players and also on the pitch. I am very excited at the prospect of being at the new training ground on a permanent basis where we will get the opportunity to do this."

Meanwhile, Ferguson will now be assisted by Gavin Strachan following the departure of Kevin Russell.

Russell has left Posh by mutual consent with Strachan moving from his Under-18 role to a first-team coaching role.

Ferguson said: "It is a blow to lose Kevin as he has been with me during all my time as a manager and without him our success would never have been possible and I cannot thank him enough, but we both felt the timing was correct.

"I am looking forward to working closer with Gavin, whose work with the youth team has not gone unnoticed and he is more than ready for the step-up and along with all the other staff are committed to trying to be successful both with the development of our players and success on the pitch."
