Just a matter of days after confirming the signing of National League top goal scorer Ricky Miller, Peterborough United are back at it again.
The Posh have today (May 8) announced the signing of highly rated attacking Danny Lloyd from Stockport County.
Lloyd’s contract runs out at the end of the season, and Posh have ensured that he will be playing in a Peterborough United shirt next season by swooping in, and agreeing a deal for the front man.
Lloyd scored an impressive 29 goals, as well as setting up 19 for his team mates during the last Conference North season with County.
Peterborough United confirmed the move on their Twitter:

Lloyd will sign a three year deal at the club.
Speaking about his move, Lloyd said: “There were a number of clubs interested, but this was definitely the most attractive, and I’m thrilled we managed to get it done so quickly.”
“Everyone knows who Peterborough United are, and their mentality is very similar to me.”
When asked what he can bring to the club, he said: “I love scoring goals, but chipping in assists is great for me. I had a great season, and hopefully I can do that again this year. I will be working very hard this season.”
Peterborough United manager Grant McCann commented on the signing, saying: “Posh fans will love watching Danny play. He plays on the edge, and has a real hunger and desire about him.”
Many Peterborough fans won’t have seen Danny Lloyd in action, so here’s a clip of one of his best goals from the previous season:
