Kettering Town Football Club ‘Youth Academy’ and ‘Poppies in the Community’ provides football for all genres across the community.
We provide coaching and matches for children of all abilities aged 3 to 21, boys and mens, girls and ladies, vets and multi-disability. We provide events such as youth community and schools tournaments, after school clubs, and school holiday football courses. Our academy elite and development under 10-16 youth teams participate in the Junior Premier League, the under 18’s in the Northants Senior Youth League, the under 19’s education team in the National Youth Alliance and the under 21’s in the Midland League. The under 7 to 9 community teams play in the local leagues and the pre-academy under 7-9 teams play friendlies. Our under 6’s and Little Legends 3-5 year olds groups train in preparation for the youth journey that lies ahead as we provide a pathway to full time education for 16-19 year olds in partnerships with secondary schools. Our youth system has seen many success with players coming through the system gaining contracts and making first team appearances.
