Kettering Town: Club Profile

A tough nut to crack at the best of times, The Poppies became a regular opponent during our time in the Conference. Their fortunes took a slide as the 1990s became the 2000s, however; not that relegation in 2001 stopped them coming back to haunt us in the next season’s FA Cup campaign. After a one-season return in 2002-3, Kettering Town were relegated again and didn’t make it back up until 2008.

By that point, of course, they’d gone down the route of appointing a 1990s Spurs legend as manager. Who’d do that, eh? Anyway, we came up against Gazza’s Kettering side in the 2005-6 FA Cup; an encounter we won 3-1.

Since our promotion to the Football League, things have been tough for the Poppies. No longer at their Rockingham Road ground and demoted to the Southern League; the path back to Conference level would seem to be a long one at the moment.
