Jack Collison has a message for West Ham fans

West Ham Upton Park

Former West Ham United and Ipswich Town midfielder Jack Collison moved to Peterborough United earlier this summer.

Jack Collison has taken to social networking site Twitter to express his delight at making an appearance for Peterborough United on Saturday.

The Wales international midfielder played for Dave Robertson’s side against his former club West Ham United in a pre-season friendly at London Road.

The 26-year-old former Ipswich Town man was delighted to have got some playing time and thanked the Hammers supporters for their reception during the 3-3 draw.

Getting career back on track

Collison, who was on the books of the Hammers from 2005 to 2014, moved to Ipswich on a short-term deal in September of last year, but he failed to make a competitive appearance for the Championship club.

In fact, the Welshman has not featured in a competitive game since May 2014 because of a knee injury.

The 26-year-old will now hope to kickstart his career and get regular playing time at Peterborough next season.

Peterborough finished ninth in the League One table in the 2014-15 campaign with 63 points from 46 matches, six points behind sixth-placed Chesterfield.

Meanwhile, West Ham ended up 12th in the Premier League with 47 points from 38 matches.
