Woking Sell Winger Ward To Peterborough

1 week ago By Steve Whitney

Woking have announced that Joe Ward has left the Cards to join SkyBet League One side Peterborough United for an undisclosed fee.

Ward, 22, signed for Woking in June on a two-year deal and immediately impressed the fans with his pace, skill, and high work rate.

The tricky winger made thirty-four appearances for the club, scoring 7 goals including the winner in the opening match of the season against Gateshead, and the crucial equalising goal against his new side Peterborough in the Emirates FA Cup Second Round to take the tie to a replay.

Before joining the Cards, Ward started his career at Chelmsford City, signing for Brighton & Hove Albion in the summer of 2015, and joining eventual National League champions Lincoln City on loan last season where he scored 3 goals in their journey to the Buildbase FA Trophy semi-finals, also playing a part in their FA Cup run including against Arsenal at the Emirates.

Woking manager Anthony Limbrick said: “We fought hard to sign Joe Ward in the summer, with interest from Football League clubs and National League clubs, and managed to sign him on a two-year contract. All the football staff have helped develop Joe and improve him as a player and this has shown in his performances in both the league and the FA Cup.

“It’s a great opportunity for Joe to move up two leagues to a club in the play-offs and trying to push to get into the Championship and we never stand in the way of players wanting to do that. We’re happy with the fee and this allows us to reinvest in the squad and bring in players over the next couple of weeks to improve the team”.
