Kettering Town to consider move to Rushden home

Kettering Town Football Club is in discussions to use Nene Park, home of Rushden & Diamonds, chairman Imraan Ladak has admitted.

The Blue Square Bet Premier side’s lease on its Rockingham Road ground runs out in 2013, whilst Rushden & Diamonds has been expelled from the Conference and has been issued a winding-up order.

"We're in negotiations with [Kettering's landlord] Ben Pickering and have been for some time," Ladak said.

"And we're also negotiating with Nene Park," he added, speaking to BBC Radio Northampton.

"The ideal scenario for Northa­mpton­shire would be Rushden & Diamonds playing at Nene Park and us at Rockingham Road until we can build a new stadium.  But it looks as if it will be impossible for us to do that, and it's also very tricky for Rushden.

"We signed an option a couple of years ago to play at Corby - but that's not something we're looking to take up."

Rushden had a winding up petition against the club adjourned for 21 days on Monday.
