“It is that sad time to say to everyone involved with Kettering Town Football Club, that I am announcing after 11 years and 3 months I have left the mighty Poppies. This coincides with Ritchie Jeune, who joined almost the same day as myself at Nene Park, and with Ritchie moving on I feel it is time for me to go as well.

I remember all the problems we had over the first couple of years as all the effort and financing of the club that Ritchie resolved, he gave me the chance to help the club grow first at Corby and then finally at Latimer Park.

The club has just appointed their 11th manager during my time, and the best of luck to him and our fantastic fans. The ‘Dapper Doyle’ song still resonates with me as of course all the brilliant players over the years I have spotted (too many to mention) or helped with the signings.

I will miss so many wonderful people from the ladies and staff that look after the clubhouse, all the volunteers, our kit men and media team, god bless you all.  I cannot name anyone apart from Ritchie otherwise I would probably be here for another 11 years, thank you everyone”.
