Toseland comes in on loan

The club are pleased to announce the loan signing of Ben Toseland from Kettering Town FC.

Left sided player Toseland, 20, is a former Northampton Town Scholar who signed for Kettering Town in the summer of 2017. He went on to play over 50 games last season helping the Poppies secure a play off place.

Ben’s game time has been limited of late with Kettering flying high after a fantastic first half to the season. The loan is an initial 28 day period where we hope Ben will have a positive impact and help the team pick up some more valuable points during his stay.

Please join me in welcoming Ben to the club and as always we hope your time with us is a success.
