The Magnificent Seven

As we approach our last 7 games of the season we are still in with a shout of getting into the play-offs.  Sure, we are reliant on others dropping points.   Desperate losing streaks at, say, Barton and Daventry would be most welcome at this time!

Of the seven teams we are to face, four of them are safely mid-table (Aylesbury, Aylesbury Utd, Egham and Hayes) so have no reason not to meekly surrender to the powerhouse Poppies. 

A couple of teams are going for the title / promotion (Dunstable and Daventry).  They both have to visit, with trembling anticipation, Fortress Latimer Park, where we haven't lost in the League since mid-September. 

The last is looking to avoid relegation (North Greenford Utd.)  By then it will be the last game of the season, when NGU will either be down and not bothering to try, or safe and too hung-over to play well.

So, on paper at least, we should be looking forward to next year's big derby with our former landlords in Corby.  But not as much as the local police will be looking forward to it of course!  Kerching!

"C'mon Kettering!  C'mon Kettering!"
