The 21-year-old, who spent time in the Manchester City youth academy, is being watched by Posh ahead of a potential move.
The youngster is currently playing his football for South Liverpool in the North West Counties Football League First Division North, which is the tenth tier of English football. He has shown his goalscoring capabilities already this season, as he has netted nine in the league with a further goal coming in the Edward Case Cup.
‘Peterborough United want a look at prolific striker Charlie Glennon who is banging in goals for South Liverpool,’ stated Nixon via his Patreon.
‘Glennon, 21, who was at Manchester City as a kid, has been starring for John Aldridge’s old club and is one being asked down for a trial by Posh,’ he added.
Although the young star has shown his ability in front of goal, including in a hat-trick towards the start of the season against Garstang, it would be unlikely that he would make it into Peterborough’s first team immediately. Instead, if he were to be successful in his trial, the Cambridgeshire club would have to decide whether to keep him in the Under-21 side and nurture his development more closely, or seek a loan move in a bid to develop the youngster further.
Darren Ferguson’s team currently find themselves in fourth place in the League One table due to a solid run of form that has seen them lose only once in their last 14 league matches.
Posh has a history of developing young strikers into valuable assets, such as Ivan Toney or Britt Assombalonga. Therefore, this seems like a move that Darragh MacAnthony would be all for.
Although the step up from the tenth tier of English football to League One is a rather large one, natural goalscoring ability is often described as one of the most transferrable skills. If that does end up being the case for Glennon, Peterborough fans will hope that in a few year’s time, they can add him to the list of successful transfers they’ve made in the forward positions.
