Kettering Town have added six young players to their first-team squad for the remainder of the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division season.
With the Poppies’ play-off hopes all-but gone, boss Marcus Law is set to run the rule over the young guns with one eye on the future.
Three members of the club’s under-18 and under-21 squads – goalkeeper Callum Snow, defender Callum Willimont and midfielder Ryan Kenyon – have all signed Southern League forms.
Meanwhile, three players from United Counties League Division One high-fliers Bugbrooke, who are managed by former Poppies under-21 boss Mitch Austin, have signed on dual registrations.
They include Reubus Richard-Noel, who has featured for Kettering in the past, defender Rafael Garcia-Krailing and forward Ashley Eales.
The moves have been made head of the Southern League’s registration deadline tomorrow (Thursday).
Kettering have six league matches left this season, the first of which is at rock-bottom Cinderford Town on Saturday.
