Marcus Law is looking forward to getting on with the job after a controversial week for Kettering Town.

Rumours circulated last Sunday that Law was about to step down as Poppies boss in the wake of a disappointing 2-0 defeat at Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division strugglers Bideford on Saturday.

The club issued a statement on Monday confirming that Law had “indicated his intention” to resign but, following discussions with chairman Ritchie Jeune, he will remain in the position having rejoined the club during the summer.

It has proven to be a frustrating season so far for Law and his players with their inconsistent league form and a struggle to attract new players to the club.

But, with the air now seemingly clear, Law is keen to look forward as he prepares for this weekend’s FA Trophy second qualifying round clash with Burscough at Latimer Park.

And he confirmed he has spoken “individually and collectively” to his squad as they bid to hit back from the loss at Bideford with victory tomorrow (Saturday).

“It has been a long week for everyone and now we just want to get on with the job at hand,” Law said.

“I have spoken to the players individually and collectively and they have let me know what their gripes are if they had any.

“Hopefully, we can take what has happened and turn it into a positive.

“But we will only see if that is the case over the next couple of weeks.

“I am just looking forward to getting back out there again now.”

The Poppies are again set to be without striker Courtney Baker-Richardson and central defender Ollie Thorne for Saturday’s clash as both are injured.
