Championship strugglers Ipswich Town decided against offering Steven Taylor a contract this summer.

Only 31, he will no doubt have been expecting a decent second tier club as a minimum at this stage of his career but it hasn’t quite worked out that way.

After Mick McCarthy told him he wouldn’t be offered a deal, Steven Taylor turned up at Doncaster Rovers on trial last week, playing 45 minutes in a friendly for Rovers against Derby County.

Doncaster boss Darren Ferguson said he was hoping to do a deal with the former Newcastle defender but instead he has turned up at another League One club.

Peterborough United Official Announcement:

‘TAYLOR SIGNS | The Football Club are delighted to announce the signing of former Newcastle United Defender Steven Taylor on a two year deal!’

It is five years ago since Taylor played double figures of league games for any club and the past seven seasons, only once has he managed more than 14 league starts in a year.

So, whilst Peterborough are celebrating landing a 31 year old who was playing Premier League football only 14 months ago, his injury record has been shocking.

The League One club also did this video below to announce Taylor signing…

    Good luck to him,Doncaster looked nailed on,presumably Darren’s dad had a quiet word with him ?

  • Oooh bobbi fleckman

    Good luck to Saylor, always put the effort in, a good defender and a good communicator with the other players, especially fellow defenders. I hope he does well as injuries have been unkind to him.

  • Leazes Ender

    The fools.

    Rasp rasp rasp.

    That’s the bottom of the barrel being scraped as there is nothing more newsworthy happening at the moment….

  • Paul Patterson

    Good luck to him. I don’t wish him any ill will, he was just not good enough for us and sadly wasn’t for about five years before he left.
