WELLINGTON-BORN striker Tom Nichols has completed a move from Peterborough United to Bristol Rovers for an undisclosed fee.

The 23-year-old, who began his career at Exeter City and scored his first senior goal aged 17, was Peterborough's top scorer last season with 10 goals but his performances divided opinion among the Posh faithful and he has now returned to the Westcountry.

Nichols moved to London Road in January 2016 after impressing for the Grecians, notably scoring against Liverpool in the third round of the FA Cup, and he continued his impressive cup record with a strike against Chelsea for Peterborough in this year's competition.

The frontman is not part of what is expected to be a youthful squad for the friendly at the Viridor Stadium against Taunton Town tomorrow (Tuesday), as he is travelling to Portugal with the first team for Rovers' friendly against Hull City.

Entry to Taunton Town v Bristol Rovers tomorrow costs £5 for adults, £3 for concessions and £1 for 14-18-year-olds, while under-14s and season ticket holders go free.

Gates open at 6.15pm, with kick-off at 7.45pm.
