Kings Lynn Town defender Frazer Blake-Tracy has signed a two-year contract at League One side Peterborough United, it has been revealed.

Peterborough United have completed the signing of Kings Lynn defender Frazer Blake-Tracy, the Eastern Daily Press have reported. Kings Lynn confirmed the move on their Twitter page on Thursday afternoon, but the tweet has since been deleted.

Peterborough United chairman Darragh MacAnthony has openly said that the club are keen to return to their highly successful ways of buying “young and hungry” talents from lower league clubs, and the arrival of Blake-Tracy surely shows that.

Blake-Tracy has been a standout performer for King’s Lynn since joining the club two years ago and is ready to test himself higher up the football league ladder. He confirmed that he would be leaving the Linnets on his Instagram, thanking the club and the club’s supporters.

Kings Lynn chairman Stephen Cleese has heaped praise on the 23-year-old defender, wishing Blake-Tracy the best in his next step in his footballing career.

“Firstly, it goes without saying that I am truly delighted for Frazer on securing this move into league football with a great club like Peterborough United. 

“He has worked extremely hard in his time with us and fully deserves the chance to earn his living from the game he loves.

“I must also thank Peterborough United for their handling of the situation and I am pleased to confirm that King’s Lynn Town have been looked upon very favourably financially in the deal that has been agreed.

“It again proves that playing for King’s Lynn Town can put you in the shop window and get you noticed by full-time clubs, as Cameron Norman and Cameron King proved last season and now the move with Frazer has shown.

“Everyone at the club wishes Frazer well with his move into league football and all the very best for the future.”
