Kettering FC: A New Club

In the summer of 2012, a new club was formed by former supporters of Kettering Town FC, and this Thursday, September 13th, sees them play their first ever home game. Under The League is delighted to be publishing press releases from the club.

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.


About James Bartaby

Hey, I'm James and I'm relatively new to non-league football, having only taken in my first match in September 2011. Despite it being a 0-4 defeat for Hampton & Richmond Borough, I became a huge fan of the club and NL in general. So much so that they are now the first club that I mention when talking about which team I support! I just got massively disillusioned with top flight football in this country and the attitudes of the lawmakers and top clubs in general, and I wanted to start taking my son to see decent football. I am now the club's Deputy Press Officer, and loving every minute!
