Players in 12 hour sporting marathon

Kettering’s futsal team is taking part in a 12-hour sporting marathon to help raise money for a charity which supports victims of crime.

Futsal is a fast-paced, small-sided version of football that is recognised widely across the world.

Kettering has the only team in the county and the side plays in the national premier league.

The event, in aid of the Always a Chance charity, takes place at Arena Sports, in Thurston Drive, on Saturday, August 16, from 8am to 8pm.

The Kettering players will be facing visiting teams from elsewhere in the country.
