Marcus Law has strengthened his Kettering Town squad ahead of tomorrow’s (Saturday) clash with Histon.

The Poppies have confirmed the arrival of full-back Michael Richens on a loan deal from Vanarama National League South side Hemel Hempstead Town.

The defender started his career at Peterborough United and had loan spells with the likes of Histon, Nuneaton Town and Bishop’s Stortford before joining Stevenage, where his move was made permanent in January this year. He was then released in the summer before joining Hemel.

Richens is eligible to make his debut for Kettering in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division match with the Stutes at Latimer Park.
