Woking winger Joe Ward has landed a move at Peterborough United just two months after he scored against the Posh in the FA Cup.
The 22-year-old follows in the footsteps of other Non-League stars such as Marcus Maddison, Danny Lloyd and Ricky Miller, who have all been snapped up by the League One play-off hopefuls in previous years.
Cards boss Anthony Limbrick signed Ward on a two-year deal in June and his performances have been a highlight of Woking’s mixed season.

He made 31 appearances, scoring 7 goals, including the equaliser against Peterborough in their FA Cup second tie.
Manager 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.”
Woking are 14th in the National League and host Tranmere Rovers this weekend.
