    How sad. I wasn’t a true Poppies fan, brought up in Corby. But I did admire them and followed their close attempts to break into the Football league back in the 70’s and early ’80’s. I had a great day following them to a Wembley FA Trophy final with a bunch of mates from work. And I did go to occasional games and friendlies from time to time. A couple of FA cup games also come to mind.

    Great memories of what was a terrific club. Really sad to see it grind to a disintegrating halt in this awful manner.

  3. I’m looking forward to the new Kettering Football Club – created by ex Poppies fans – gaining all the former members of KTFC and beginning again next year as a supporter owned club.

    The derbies with AFC Rushden & Diamonds (of which I am a member) will be fantastic.

    RIP KTFC, long live the Poppies fans!

    Mr Ladak was responsible for racking up debts of £1.2m at a club he claims he loves. He remains a multi-millionaire yet is not prepared to put any more into the club, which is now dying on his watch. Not paying the players is one thing, not paying the electricity bill is another. A few weeks ago a fan had to pay the club’s laundry bill so they could have clean kit for the next home game. If Ladak doesn’t have the decency to pay such a comparatively trifling bill, this is proof that he cannot possibly “love” this football club. Fans no longer believe a single word he says. The fact is there ARE no potential investors. Who could possibly have the money and sense to clear up Ladak’s dirty mess?

    Tony. You ask ”Who could possibly have the money and sense to clear up Ladak’s dirty mess?”. Search for George Rolls on this site or type his name into Google – and then be very afraid!
