King’s Lynn sell top defender

Peterborough United have snapped up the influential King’s Lynn Town left-back Frazer-Blake Tracy for an undisclosed fee.

The defender featured heavily in both matches against Hereford in the Southern League Premier Division two seasons ago, and it is little surprise he is now making the transition into the Football League.

The Linnets boss Ian Culverhouse will be hoping a large slice of the transfer fee can be used for squad building after the club’s promotion to the Motorama National League North where they will once again lock horns with Hereford.

Frazer-Blake Tracy was believed to have been tracked by Stevenage, Tranmere and Portsmouth, but the 23-year-old has instead agreed terms with Peterborough United boss Darren Ferguson.

Ferguson said, “He is a bit of a late developer but still young, he is a good size, a good athlete, has a good left-back and he has a lot of potential. He is a modern day full-back, he can get up and down and that is key to how I want to play. He can also operate as a left wing-back or as a third centre back on the left”.

Linnets chairman Stephen Cleeve speaking to the King’s Lynn website said, “Firstly, it goes without saying that I am truly delighted for Frazer on securing this move into league football with a great club like Peterborough United.

“He has worked extremely hard in his time with us and fully deserves the chance to earn his living from the game he loves.

“I must also thank Peterborough United for their handling of the situation and I am pleased to confirm that King’s Lynn Town have been looked upon very favourably financially in the deal that has been agreed.

Tracy has signed a two-year contract with the League One outfit.
