Jul 22nd, 2017

Kettering add to their Senior Cup trophy as they came from behind to finally overcome Northampton Town on penalties in the Maunsell Cup Final. The Cobblers took a first-half lead through Dean Bowditch before Kettering equalised through substitute Michael Richens’ long range lob amidst heavy rain at the Dog & Duck.

The match went to penalties and an impressive run of strikes from the Poppies saw them triumph by 5 to 3 in front of a sodden pitch and 776 hardy souls.
