It’s official, Mark Beevers is off to pastures new.
Beevers has signed for The Posh on a three-year deal which will officially begin on July 1.

Mark Beevers signed for Bolton on a free transfer from Millwall ahead of the 2016/17 League One season and helped the Trotters to promotion that year, scoring 7 goals in the process.
Beevers joins midfielder Josh Vela and full-back Pawel Olkowski in calling quits on his Bolton career.
The lofty defender made a home for himself in the heart of Wanderers’ defence and formed an infamous partnership with David Wheater. The pair helped Bolton secure their place in the Championship in 2017/18 in a dramatic final day encounter with Nottingham Forest.
This season, however, has been less successful for the Wanderers defender. Beevers played just 32 times in the league, missing out through injury and increased competition for places.
Beevers was Bolton’s second-highest scorer this season with four goals in all competitions and three in the league.
The defender’s move to Peterborough means that he’s likely to face Bolton next season when the clubs meet in League One.
While Bolton fell to relegation from last season’s Championship and ended the campaign in administration, Peterborough had a more comfortable time with a seventh-place finish in League One.
In all, Mark Beevers played in 132 games for Bolton Wanderers and will be sorely missed as a member of the team’s defence.
All the best for the future, Mark.
