Invite to Unite in Fan power
Kettering Football Club, who kicked off their historic first season last week at Eynesbury (a 2-1 defeat), are inviting football supporters from all over the County to join them for their first game at Raunds Town next Thursday evening.
The club, formed by former Kettering Town supporters, are inviting football lovers to join them in their “County debut” game as a newly formed club in Northamptonshire.
The Club’s Acting Commercial & Marketing Manager Simon Cox said “We welcome people to come and join us for our first ever game at Raunds on Thursday and celebrate our first ever game in the County. Although we are playing at Raunds for the foreseeable future, we are focussed on bringing the club back to the Town and are actively working on plans which we will unveil as soon as we can.
In the meantime, we welcome football fanatics to come and see our first game against Rothwell Corinthians. There is a great deal of “togetherness” in grass roots football with many volunteers putting in hours of unpaid of work for the love of their club as well as players knowing each other through the local football network. We would like to invite everyone together for our first home game and promote non-league football as a whole.
These are exciting times for the club and the hard work and planning by many volunteers has paid off. We are delighted to have a team from Kettering playing football with an open door policy and at a sustainable level and we welcome people to come and see our debut in the County.”
The game kicks off at 7.45 pm at Raunds Town F.C. and details and directions can be found on the club’s website.
