Poppies to have early inspection

A pitch inspection will take place at 10.30am tomorrow morning ahead of Kettering Town’s scheduled Blue Square Bet Premier home clash with Forest Green Rovers.

Match referee Michael Bull has agreed that the club can allow Football League official Andy Woolmer to inspect the Nene Park pitch to provide an early decision.

Frost covers have been placed on the surface but it is understood that prospects aren’t great following the heavy snow that fell in the County over the weekend.

Should the game be given the go ahead, the Poppies will be looking for at least 20 volunteers to help get the snow off the covers and then remove the covers from the pitch.

Stadium manager Malc Harris said: “We will let people know as soon as the decision is made.

“And then from 11am we will need an army of around 20 people to help us.

“Anyone who can come down and help will need to wrap up warm and bring a shovel with them.”
