Kettering finish on a high.

By

Kettering 9-0 Norwich City

This time last year both teams enjoyed promotion and were planning their campaigns in Div2N. Only Kettering will be able to carry that task out again this summer as already relegated Norwich were gently put to the sword by a Kettering team that declared at half time in the spring sunshine.
The visitors brought a hotch potch side to Kettering obviously not fancying the long trip and expected result. The ten they did manage to bring held out for ten minutes before the first half flood gates opened. Goals by skipper Grant Carlin (2), Dom Cusk, Wallace Cairns and first first team goals for Harry Tanser and a Will Banfield penalty stroke gave Kettering a thumping 6 goal lead at half time.
The second half was always going to be difficult as however hard it is to try and keep playing properly it’s is quite difficult against limited opposition. Chances came regularly but the finishing touch wasn’t there with multiple players guilty of not scoring. Cusk and Tanser added seconds and Carlin completed his hat trick with a top corner finish. Norwich did have time to nearly score butbthe eagle eyed official ruled the ball was struck from just outside the D. They also had time for a quick green to yellow card upgrade.
Kettering finish 9th in their inaugural season in 2N which achieved their objective of consolidation but on reflection can feel a little disappointed that they didn’t finish higher. They’ve learnt that you need to be clinical in this league and put teams away when you have the chance but they have competed well, especially with the better teams.
Skipper Carlin said “it’s been a good season and this young team have been learning every week and next year we will be looking to kick on again”.
