Josh Moreman has signed a contract with Kettering Town ahead of the new Calor League Division One Central campaign.
The frontman was a big hit with the Poppies faithful as he hit 12 goals during their sensational run of form in the second half of last season, which ultimately ended with them missing out on promotion when they lost 3-2 to Slough Town in the play-off final.
Moreman arrived from United Counties League side Deeping Rangers, having started the season at Corby Town.
And he has now been rewarded for his efforts with a deal that ties him down at Latimer Park for the foreseeable future.
Poppies joint-manager Thomas Baillie said: “We initially wanted to sign Josh after he left Corby last season but he wanted to go and play a bit closer to home with Deeping.
“But at that time he said he was keen to come to Kettering and we eventually got him just before Christmas.
“I think he needed that time after leaving Corby just to go and rediscover his love for the game.
“He came in and did a brilliant job for us during the second half of last season and he has been rewarded for that.
“It is important for the club to have players that can grow with it over the next few years and Josh is the perfect example.”
