Poppies struggling to field team

Kettering Town could be unable to field a team in their league match against Darlington on Tuesday.

Town are currently under a transfer embargo and could only name two substitutes for their trip to York City on Saturday, which they went on to lose 7-0.

The embargo was brought in as the club has been failing to pay its players' wages in full recently.

Players like Moses Swaibu, Kiernan Hughes-Mason and Ellis Deeney can all join another side with seven days notice as they are all on non-contract terms.

"On Friday we had seven or eight players training," said manager Mark Stimson. "Some of my boys are putting themselves under a lot of strain.

"I'll be planning for a session on Monday. Whether I have the bodies, I may have to turn to plan A, B or C."
