Posh land Shrews striker

Published Add your comment

Peterborough have signed striker Dave Hibbert on a three-year deal from Shrewsbury.

Hibbert netted 15 goals for the Shrews this term and was recently offered a new contract by the League Two club.

But the 24-year-old instead decided to move to London Road as Posh boss Gary Johnson completed his first signing of the summer.

Johnson told the club's official website: "Dave is a player I have liked for a little while to be honest, he is technically very good and has scored a lot of goals in a side that probably didn't quite reach the expectations they had hoped for.

"Every club likes to have a tall player in the squad, it is like having a club in the golf bag if you like. I am delighted to have him on board and am looking forward to working with him."

Hibbert added: "The manager sold the place to me and I am delighted to be here. I am excited to be part of a promotion push."
