Jim Gannon To Leave Peterborough At The End Of The Season

News has broken today that Jim Gannon will be leaving Peterborough at the end of the season when his contract expires after turning down a long term contract to stay at the relegation threatened club. Gannon took charge of Peterborough in February with the aim of trying to keep them in the Championship but with that looking highly unlikely he has decided to end his stay at London Road. The club are are currently ten points adrift of safety in the Championship and heading for League One football next season, they will also be looking for a new man to take charge of the club in the Summer after a season of turmoil in the Championship.

Darren Ferguson was the man who led The Posh to back-to-back promotions but after a a tough start to the season Ferguson was given the elbow in a surprise move back in November. He was then replaced by Mark Cooper but the former Kettering Boss lasted less than three months at London Road before being sacked which led Jim Gannon arriving at the club on a short term deal. Gannon has failed to lead the club to safety but he had impressed the board enough to be offered a four-year-contract but Gannon has turned down that offer for personal reasons leaving The Posh looking for their fourth Manager in under a year.

Gannon has a pregnant partner and is thought to be reluctant to relocate his family down to Peterborough which he would have needed to do had he remained at London Road past this Summer. At this stage though Peterborough are not a particularly attractive looking proposition for a Manager with relegation looking inevitable and the team going through three Managers since November.

Peterborough fans will be hoping for some stability with relegation now looking inevitable back down to League One, any new Manager will need to get the team back to winning ways and will be expected to be pushing for promotion in League One at the first time of asking. The owner Darragh MacAnthony is a man that is expecting success at London Road and has shown in the past year that he is not afraid to act if he believes the club are heading in the wrong direction. That will be a fact that any Manager heading to London Road this Summer will need to be aware of, a fast start is essential if a new man is to be given time to build a squad capable of heading back to the Championship and more importantly remain there.
