    Default former ground of kettering town fc (rockingham rd) july 2013


    paid this site a visit last week nice solo splore


    already the chaves and metal fairies have ripped it apart

    bit of history

    Kettering Town were originally formed in 1872, turning professional in 1891. The club graduated through twelve different leagues from 1892 until they became founding members of the*Alliance Premier League*in 1979. The club maintained its status in the top flight of semi-professional football until the 2000–01 season.
    In 2005 the club was in the public eye for signing "gazza" Paul Gascoigne.as manager which lasted for the whole of 39 days for reasons im sure we all know "liked a wee tipple"
    in 2011 the owner of rockingham rd refused to renew any contract for ktfc and they moved to the former ground of rushed and diamands which was a short lived stay of 18 months due to expensives and sad to say but the "poppies" kettering town is now on its knees
