Kettering Town have completed the signing of experienced defender Chris Carruthers on a dual registration from local rivals Corby Town.

The left-back has signed in time to be available for the Poppies’ FA Trophy second qualifying round clash with Burscough at Latimer Park tomorrow (Saturday).

The Kettering-born player had been told by Corby boss Tommy Wright that he was free to seek first-team football away from Steel Park, having returned there for a second spell in the summer.

Carruthers lists Northampton Town, Oxford United and Bristol Rovers among his former clubs.
