Kettering play two divisions higher than Sports and warmed up for this tie with an impressive 7-0 win at St Ives on Saturday (November 5). If Kettering field a strong side, Sports will be hard pushed to get a positive result at Latimer Park. The Poppies play their home games in Burton Latimer these days.

Kettering are charging normal matchday admission prices for the fixture so it’s £10 for adults, £6 for concessions and £1 for under 16s.

For those unable to get to the game, Poppies TV will be broadcasting. The link is: http://poppiestv.ketteringtownfc.com. The cost to non season ticket holders is £8.

Sports stars Josh Moreman and Avelino Vieira are both ex-Poppies.

Stamford AFC are back in Evo Stik Northern Premier Division One South action tomorrow when hosting Loughborough Dynamo at the Zeeco Stadium.
