Will City ever play Posh in a league match?

Will City ever play Posh in a league match?

I was born and brought up within the sound of St Peter Mancroft's bells in the heart of our fine City.

I am also proud of the fact that I managed to prize my away from Norfolk to explore other worlds, in this case 14 years in North Cambridgeshire and South Lincolnshire. The benefit of being in exile was the improved accessibility to the rest of the U.K. and therefore the ease of making midweek away games to follow the Canaries.

I was also able to chill out on the terracing of London Road, Peterborough and watch my 'adopted' team with a new set of mates built up through work, beer and neighbours. 

Posh have been around since 1934 on joining the Midland League and then made it to Division Four in 1960. Over the next 58 years, the Canaries and Posh have failed to spend one single season in the same league. Our six competitive encounters so far have been between 1974 and 2016 contesting the Texaco Cup, Football League Group Cup, League Cup (twice), FA Cup and most recently the 6-1 victory in the Football League Trophy.

Posh were first promoted to the second tier for two seasons from 1992 whilst we were in the Premier League. Their second visit was in 2009 whilst we were winning League One.

Peterborough's last spell was for two more seasons from 2011, once again the Canaries were doing the business in the top division.

All this brings me to this season. Currently Posh are sitting pretty at the top of League One with six wins, one draw and only one defeat, their best ever start to a season I believe? If they can keep it up, what will it mean to City… I can not see us missing them yet again through promotion, I'll let you draw your own conclusions!
