CHERRIES star Josh McQuoid admitted he was “buzzing” after scoring in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final this afternoon.

The youngster, on a temporary deal at Peterborough until the end of the season, helped his loan club defeat League Two Chesterfield 3-1 by netting the opening goal after seven minutes.

McQuoid’s tap-in was his first goal of the campaign and the Southampton-born player admitted it had been a perfect afternoon.

He told Cherries’ official website: “It’s a good feeling to score in a final at Wembley. It’s what you dream of when you’re little to play at Wembley, but just to help the team win today was good.

“It couldn’t have gone any better. That’s my first goal this season so it was a relief as well, so when I saw it go in I was buzzing.

“We had some chances and they had some chances, but luckily we took ours. I thought they played very well, but luckily we matched them so it was a good game.”

Posh boss Darren Ferguson became the first man to win the competition as both a player and manager since Sean O’Driscoll achieved the feat with Cherries in 1984 and Doncaster in 2007.
