VIDEO: Kettering win as club marks 50 years at home

Former players at a town’s rugby club have celebrated half a century at their ground with a special lunch this afternoon (Saturday, November 2).

Kettering RFC moved to Waverley Road in 1963, and about 120 ex-players marked the anniversary before the 1st XV league fixture against Huntingdon.

And, fittingly, the current crop of Blues marked the occasion with a comfortable 24-0 victory.

Many spectators watched from the clubhouse’s new balcony, which was opened earlier this season.
