Kettering Town have been handed a trip to Potters Bar Town on the opening day of the Calor League Division One Central season on Saturday, August 17.

The Poppies will then have successive home matches against Barton Rovers and Slough Town before a Bank Holiday Monday trip to St Ives Town.

Over the Christmas period, Dean Thomas’ side will host St Ives on Boxing Day, travel to Slough on December 28 before travelling to County rivals Daventry Town on New Year’s Day.

The Poppies will round off their campaign with a trip to North Greenford United on April 26.

The Poppies, meanwhile, continued their pre-season schedule with a 5-0 success at UCL Premier Division side Harborough Town on Tuesday night.

Goals from Jonathon Thorpe, Louis Hamilton and Jake Newman put Kettering 3-0 up at half-time before trialist Kieran Joseph rounded things off with a late brace in the second period.

The game was attended by midfielder Aidan Bradshaw, who recently had an operation after being diagnosed with testicular cancer. The club have confirmed he is now expecting results from tests next week.
