Kettering Town are the latest club to reluctantly withdraw from this season’s FA Cup.

As with fellow National League North side Boston United and others, the Poppies have taken the decision following COVID-19 infection. Paul Cox’s side were due to face Brackley Town in third round qualifying.

Kettering’s league game with Southport at the weekend was postponed and the club say they will not be able to play AFC Fylde this coming Saturday either.

They are, though, hopeful of playing Guiseley on 24th October.
