The board of directors would like to thank our fans for your support this season and your understanding during what is proving to be a very challenging period in the club’s history. Sadly we don’t know for sure when games will resume but fully support the league’s decision to suspend the season. Whilst we always put football ahead of so many things in life we should not lose sight of the health risks that we face and what may have ensued if this difficult decision hadn’t been made.
Kettering Town Football Club, like many grassroot teams, operates on a strict budget that is underpinned by match day revenues and without home fixtures we will obviously have some difficult decisions to make and some financially challenging times ahead. But we want you to rest assured that we remain committed to the club and that any decisions we do make will be for the club’s long term benefit and protection. We have been contacted by a number of fans asking how you can help and a number of initiatives will be launched in the coming days/weeks.
We would also like to confirm that we are in regular contact with the league’s board and two way communication is very much open. However, everyone needs to appreciate that this situation is new to all of us and sadly there is no magic answer or defined schedule, we all need to be patient, flexible and understanding.
Your continued support and understanding is very much appreciated and we will provide further statements as the situation becomes clearer. Please take notice of public health England guidelines. Keep yourselves and your loved ones safe which the primary concern of the club.
