Posh build on defensive force

Published Add your comment

Peterborough have signed defender Craig Alcock on a three-year contract from Yeovil.

Alcock has been a summer target for Posh boss Darren Ferguson but a move to London Road appeared to have stalled earlier in the week.

However, an undisclosed compensation fee has now been agreed between the two clubs after the 23-year-old's contract at Huish Park expired.


Alcock will link up with his new team-mates at Peterborough's training camp in Portugal and Ferguson is happy to have finally pushed through a deal.

"We have been after Craig for a while, he is a very solid defender, had a good year at Yeovil last season and we are delighted to sign him," Ferguson told the club's official website. "He is predominantly a right-back but can play anywhere across the back four. He will get up and down, he is a fit lad and fits into what we are trying to achieve.

"He has flown out to Portugal and will get four sessions with the team and because of the amount of spare time you get, it will be a great opportunity to get to know the rest of the lads."
