Kettering Town will start the new Southern League Division One Central season with back-to-back home matches.

The Poppies will take on Aylesbury United at Latimer Park in the curtain-raiser on Saturday, August 9 before hosting Northwood three days later.

And Kettering will enjoy four home matches in the first month as they face North Greenford United (August 23) and local rivals Daventry Town (August 25) over the bank holiday weekend.

Christmas will see Thomas Baillie and Scott Machin take their team to Daventry on Boxing Day before they host Rugby Town on New Year’s Day.

Easter sees the Poppies at home to Bedford Town (April 4) and away to Rugby on the Monday while the season will finish at Chalfont St Peter on April 25.
