Posh play Rochdale in a friendly at the La Cala Resort as part of their Spanish training camp for a second year in a row; the game is played in four quarters of 20 minutes each. After an even first quarter Dominic Green breaks the deadlock, cutting inside after a pass from Aaron Mclean and curling the ball into the far corner. Only Green and James McKeown remain on the field after the half-way mark, with youth-team keeper Sam Cole left on the bench. Will Buckley goes closest for Rochdale, following a defence-splitting pass by Chris Brown. Ben Wright comes close to scoring with a header, but it is Shaun Batt who doubles the lead 9 minutes from time, lobbing Kenny Arthur after a long pass from birthday-boy Tom Williams.
