Dean Thomas has confirmed Dave and Ash Deeney have been released by Kettering Town.
The move has come in the wake of another defeat in the Calor League Division One Central as the Poppies were beaten 2-0 by Rugby Town at Latimer Park on Tuesday night.
Boss Thomas is now looking to bring at least one new face in before Saturday’s trip to Ashford Town (Middx) and confirmed that last season’s player-of-the-year Henry Eze is a transfer target.
And the bad news continued for the Poppies as Thomas revealed new defender Stuart Wall was involved in a car accident following Tuesday’s game and will miss the weekend clash.
Thomas said: “It is never anything personal when we let players go.
“But the squad needs freshening up and I have not been happy with a number of things over the past six weeks.
“It is down to me to change things and it needs doing.”
