PICTURE SPECIAL: Kettering Town 2 AFC Telford United 1

Kettering Town opened their Vanarama National League North campaign with a dramatic 2-1 victory over AFC Telford United at Latimer Park.

Nicky Eaden's team came back from a goal down to clinch their win, which was made all-the-more impressive after they were reduced to 10 men and goalkeeper Paul White produced a magnificent penalty save. Photographer Peter Short was on hand to capture all the action.
