Jake Newman scored his third goal of pre-season as Kettering Town made it three wins from four matches this summer.

The striker grabbed the only goal of the game on 69 minutes as the Poppies claimed a 1-0 success at Brantham Athletic.

Elsewhere, Corby Town bounced back from a 4-0 midweek defeat to Cambridge United with a 0-0 draw at Daventry Town.

Honours were also even at the Dog & Duck as AFC Rushden & Diamonds held Conference North side Brackley Town to a 1-1 draw.

Fazel Koriya put Mark Starmer’s team in front in front of over 300 fans but Brackley levelled and that was how it finished.

Other United Counties League sides in action were Thrapston Town who drew 0-0 with Kettering Nomads while Whitworth lost 5-3 at Huntingdon.
