Thank you in advance for reading this.




Kettering Town FC (the Poppies) was formed in 1872. We are a proud member of the Blue Square Premier and are one of the most successful and famous non league sides, well known for our giant killing exploits in the FA Cup. Kettering Town are actually the leading FA Cup goal scorers in history, had the first sponsorship upon our shirts and the first team to have their initials in their floodlights.


We have been managed by Tommy Lawton, Ron Atkinson, Derek Dougan, Gary Johnson, Carl Shutt, Paul Gascoigne and Mark Cooper.


England International, Jack Froggatt was both a Kettering player and manager. Dave Watson, another England International played for us. Keith Alexander, Richard Butcher, Zema Abbey, Cohen Griffith and Billy Kellock are other notable players who have featured for us.


This club now needs to raise £40,000 by the end of February otherwise it could cease to exist. We are obviously desperate for our club to survive. This club cannot be allowed to die.


Please help the Poppies to stay in bloom.


Donations are welcome via Paypal using the address [email protected], or by cheque made payable to Kettering Town (Poppies) Supporters Trust, to PO Box 6492, Kettering, NN16 0YT.

Thanks for your generosity!


Probably was Yeovil, if it was 3-2. We had some cracking games with them. Moving back to Rockingham Road has been discussed but I don't think it is a viable option, sadly.
