Posh date for Hammers

West Ham United will travel to Peterborough United for a pre-season friendly on Wednesday 14 July.

The 7.45pm match will be to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Peterborough's arrival in the Football League. Posh are set to push for promotion from League One next season under new manager Gary Johnson having finished bottom of the Championship this time around.

It will be the second time in three years that the two clubs have met in a summer friendly after the Hammers won 2-0 at London Road on 29 July. That match was notable for Valon Behrami's debut and two Craig Bellamy goals.

This year's fixture will precede two other confirmed pre-season friendlies. The club will travel to MK Dons for a 7.30pm kick-off on Wednesday 28 July and to Ipswich Town for a 3pm start on Saturday 31 July.
