Kettering Town have completed three more signings ahead of the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division campaign.

It was announced ahead of the 2-2 draw with a Northampton Town XI that former Nottingham Forest youth goalkeeper Ben Gathercole has signed non-contract forms with the Poppies while Alisan Ann has joined on a six-month loan deal from Luton Town.

The Poppies have also signed frontman Danny Voight, although they are awaiting international clearance for him.

Kettering took an early lead against the Cobblers at Nene Park through Jamie Griffiths but they were pegged back before half-time as the visitors levelled through Louis Moult.

The Poppies regained the lead through trialist Gele Pacome but Moult’s lob levelled the scores again and that was how it stayed.

Poppies starting XI: Gathercole, Ann, Gerring, Palmer, Radford, Bonnett-Johnson, Beckles, Hervel, Griffiths, Voight, Pacome.
