Kettering Town will play The Jersey Bulls as part of the build-up to the 2020/21 Season.  The Bulls  are currently unbeaten and sit top of the    Combined Counties League Division One. 

The Poppies were once managed by current Jersey FA Chairman, Bradley Vowden’s uncle, Geoff Vowden. What’s more impressive is that he succeeded “Big Ron” Atkinson as manager. 

The match will take place at Springfield Stadium on Saturday 18th July (3pm KO). Tickets will be released once this season has been completed initially to season ticket holders and then to the general fan base.

Kettering Town owner Ritchie Jeune said: “We are delighted to be able to secure this fixture and visit the island of Jersey.” Kettering will be given an allocation of 120 tickets in the main stand. Jeune added “We hope that the advanced notice of this fixture will enable as many supporters as possible to take up the opportunity to travel to the island in July. We have teamed up with a Jersey based travel company to assist any fans who want to travel to the island to watch the game for more information please contact

Jersey Bulls manager Gary Freeman said: “What a challenge for everyone involved with the Bulls, for a new club to get the opportunity to test ourselves against a team such as Kettering Town is fantastic, Kettering have a rich history in non-league football and I’m sure our supporters will be excited to see how we fare against this level of opposition. I also hope the supporters of Kettering Town fancy a nice away trip and help to create a fantastic atmosphere at Springfield”.
