Peterborough United have made their first signing of the January transfer window with the acquisition of Woking winger Joe Ward or an undisclosed fee, with the 22-year-old penning a two-and-a-half-year contract at the ABAX Stadium.
Ward, who scored against Posh in the FA Cup tie earlier in the campaign, has been in fine form this season for the Cards, scoring seven goals and creating a host of other goals for team-mates. The highly-rated attacker rose to prominence with his form for Chelmsford City and earned a move to Brighton and Hove Albion.
He had a successful loan spell with Lincoln City before joining Woking in the summer of 2017. He has been linked with a host of other clubs, but has committed his future to the Posh and has already started looking at houses in the city and surrounding areas.
Manager Grant McCann said: “I think it is a great signing for this football club. He brings pace, energy and can go past people both ways.
“He has scored a few goals already this season and was excellent against us in the FA Cup, especially in the first game at their place. He is a lad that I have been aware of for about a year now. I have kept a close eye on his progress, watching his development and am delighted to get him on board.”
