Gary Johnson To Be Named New Peterborough Manager

Richard Smith by Richard Smith / 06 April 2010, 08:12

Peterborough are set to name Gary Johnson as their new boss for next season later on today following the team's relegation to League One over the weekend. Posh have endured a torrid season in the Championship and current Manager Jim Gannon has decided to leave London Road at the end of the season despite being offered a new long term contract to remain at the helm. Gannon has been in charge for a few months but has been unable to reverse the form as they have remained cut adrift at the bottom of the table, relegation back down to League One has been inevitable for a number of months and that was confirmed at the start of April with several games still to go.

Johnson is an experienced Manager in the League system having had successful spells at Yeovil and Bristol City and he will now be charged with taking Posh back into the Championship at the first time of asking. Johnson left Bristol last month after a long spell in charge where he was just unable to lead the club to the Premier league and he will take charge at Peterborough immediately as he becomes the fourth Manager at London Road this season. The team started the campaign with Darren Ferguson in charge who was given the elbow after a couple of months beofre Mark Cooper endured a torrid couple of months at the helm. Cooper was moved on pretty quickly to make room for Jim Gannon but none of them have been able to lead the team away from the bottom of the table.

Gannon was offered a long term deal but has decided to move back north for family reasons which has paved the way for the popular Gary Johnson. The Sack Race believes this is an excellent appointment for Peterborough as long he is given the necessary time to build a successful squad that can perform well in League One which is extremely competitive. He has proven himself a master of promotion with both Britstol City and Yeovil and given the time should be able to do the same at London Road if the chairman Darragh MacAnthony affords him the time needed.
