Posh Keen on Watmore

Lee Sinnott, manager of Blue Square Bet North club Altrincham, admits it’s no surprise to hear Peterborough United are….

….interested in teenage striker Duncan Watmore.

League clubs have been watching the free-scoring Damian Reeves since last season but Watmore is now catching the eye, scoring a superb solo goal in last Saturday’s win over Corby Town.

That goal’s now gone viral, with almost 3,000 views on YouTube, while Peterborough manager Darren Ferguson attended Alty’s 2-0 defeat at Histon on Tuesday night.

And Sir Alex’s son confirmed the Championship side had been monitoring Watmore for a while, which was news to Sinnott.

“I’m not surprised, though,” he said. “He’s a talented lad so he’s bound to attract attention.

“He’s only young – he doesn’t turn 19 till next month – so there’s plenty more development in him yet, which makes him an attractive proposition. People can see the ability he’s got at the moment and he can improve on that too.

“He’s under contract till next season and he’s at university in Manchester but if an offer arises then we’ll deal with it. Duncan’s a level-headed lad and his dad used to work for the FA so I’m sure they’ll do what’s best for him.”
