Crisis club Kettering Town are understood to be behind on their Company Voluntary Arrangement (CVA) payments.

Former Poppies official Ritchie Jeune announced on Twitter this afternoon that the club had “received a notice of breach for their CVA”.

And the Northamptonshire Telegraph has received information suggesting Kettering have failed to make payments for the previous two months - a figure thought to be around £3,000.

They have been given two weeks to make the relevant payments.

Any breach of the arrangement could result in the club being wound up.

Majority shareholder Imraan Ladak has confirmed negotiations are ongoing for fresh investment to come into the troubled club.

He previously told the Telegraph: “The new potential investors that came to light last week are also looking at the potential purchase of the stadium.

“We are due to have more discussions this week.

“If it is going to happen, we need to know it is happening sooner rather than later.”
