After kicking off their league campaign with five wins out-of five, Kettering Town have a short break from league action when they travel to test their character against Bostock Isthmian League North Division opponents Romford in the FA Cup 1st Qualifying Round on Sunday.

Kettering added to their all-time FA Cup goals tally after a tough first-half at Romford ended goal-less. The second-half exploded into life as a couple of goals from Brett Solkhon (including his 100th goal for the club) sandwiched with a reply from Romford’s Kurt Smith set the ball rolling. Rhys Hoenes wrapped up the win with two goals in three minutes and the Poppies were through to the next round.
