A footballer from Broughton has been invited to Buckingham Palace next week as part of celebrations marking the 150th anniversary of the Football Association.

Jenna Kiely, who set up the ladies’ side at Kettering Futsal Club, is one of 150 volunteers to be invited to the Palace next Monday for the ceremony, which is being hosted by the FA president Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge.

Jenna, who also plays for Thrapston Town Ladies, set up the Kettering team last year, with about a dozen people regularly playing.

The FA said Jenna had been invited because she had “laid a foundation for a real grass roots legacy in the county”.
