0 Have your say The Peterborough United pre-season juggernaut rolled on today (July 14). Steve Evans’ new cast continued their summer winning streak with a 4-0 victory at St Neots Town.The Posh chief opted to field an entirely different 11 for each half at the Premier Plus Stadium and it was his second set of selections who provided the goals.An own goal, a Morgan Penfold effort and a Matty Stevens brace took the club’s tally to 22 in four workouts against non-league opposition. Saints, who play at Step 3, were the strongest rivals yet following clashes against Stamford AFC, Bedford Town and Peterborough Sports, who all play a level lower.Nine new Posh signings featured in a largely low-key opening 45 minutes when they could find no way past locally-based St Neots goalkeeper Dan Swan. ‘Laborious’ was an appropriate description of their display from Evans.Swan made smart stops to deny Siriki Dembele and Matty Godden during the same early … [Read more...] about MATCH REPORT: St Neots 0 Peterborough United 4: No stopping the Posh pre-season juggernaut

Flamingo Land’s Kumali ride stopped mid-air leaving around 20 thrill seekers dangling from their seats. The rollercoaster, which reaches 87ft and travels at a speed of 56mph, suffered what the theme park has described as a “minor mechanical issue.” It happened around 4.40pm on Thursday leaving stricken riders hanging there for more than two hours until they were rescued by on site engineers. A video showing the terrifying moment reveals how one onlooker, who had been on the ride earlier that day, heard a “donk” before the ride came to a complete halt. The man said: “I watched it stop.

I went on it earlier and it’s a fab ride, really, really, very good suspended ride like … [Read more...] about Flamingo Land coaster rider heard a ‘donk’ before it stopped
