It is advisable that you read the match preview from Kettering Town below – thank you.

In a competition where we could have been drawn against opposition from all over UK we find ourselves making the short journey to Burton Latimer to play Kettering Town on Saturday for a place in the 2nd Qualifying Round of this prestigious non league competition. In the last round the Saints defeated Rainworth Miners Welfare at the first attempt whereas our Northants opposition had to travel to Romulus for a replay in which they won 2-1, after conceding a first half lead.

The two teams have played each other already this season on Bank Holiday Monday where the Poppies run out 1-0 away winners at Westwood Road. The Saints will be looking to at least equal the scores on Saturday with hopefully the return league match being the decider on Boxing Day.

We would like to wish everyone a safe journey over to Burton Latimer on Saturday and let’s cheer on the Saints into the next round draw on Monday morning.
