Kettering Town

The Rockingahm Road Ground, Kettering

Founded in 1882, the Lilywhites first played Kettering Town in the F.A. Cup in 1921 at Milton, Road. At that time their home ground was in Rockingam Road, Kettering. A ground they used from 1897 until 2011. They had originally played in North Park and at Eldred's Field, Kettering. Since leaving Rockinham Road, they at first used the former ground of Rushden & Diamonds (Nene Park in Irthlingborough) having come to an agreement with it's owners until they were kicked out during the 2012/13 season because they could afford to pay the electricity bill. For the rest of that season they ground shared with Corby Town at Steel Park before moving to ground share with Burton Park Rangers at Latimar Park for the 2013/1 season.

The first league match between the Lilywhites and Kettering was played in the 1959/60 season.
