Kettering Town has submitted a bid to return to its former Rockingham Road ground.

Seller Savills set a deadline of this Friday, October 24, for interested parties to submit sealed bids for the site.

Poppies director Ken Samuel this week confirmed: “Our bid has already been sent in.”

Earlier this month a statement issued by Kettering Town’s board said the club recognised a return to Rockingham Road was the preferred option for fans, who have had to travel to Irthlingborough, Corby and Burton Latimer for home games in recent years.

The statement also said work would continue on progressing a bid for the site of the former Avondale schools.
