Hillsborough Disaster - 25th Anniversary Tribute

Posted by Tim 09-04-2014


Justice for the 96

As every football supporter will know, the English FA are marking this coming weekend as a tribute to the 96 Liverpool supporters who lost their lives at Hillsborough 25 years ago.

The English FA are arranging each football match over the weekend to kick-off  7 minutes later than originally scheduled marking the anniversary of the match that took place on April 15, 1989 that was called off after six minutes. Poppies Radio will also pay tribute and begin broadcasting 7 minutes later than usual at 2.52pm.

We hope all our listeners will show support, as the 'Justice of the 96' campaign continues to dominate the headlines as families and friends of the supporters who were killed seek answers to what exactly happened on that day 25 years ago.

Poppies Radio would like to extend our thoughts and best wishes to all the friends and families affected by the tragedy and 'You'll Never Walk Alone'.





#YouSavedKetteringTown

Posted by Tim 08-10-2013


The thousands of pledges and donations that Kettering supporters, football fans and well-wishers from all over the world made to the #SaveKetteringTown fund have paid off.  Kettering Town FC fought back from what some people thought was an impossible situation after being officially wound-up at the Royal Courts of Justice on the 2nd September 2013.

On Monday 7th October 2013, the 140 year history of Kettering Town and its long term future was secured following a return to the Royal Courts of Justice by Club representaives, where a rescission order was granted by the judge and an agreement reached with Rushden & Diamonds 2008 Ltd.

Poppies Radio interviewed the Kettering Town Chairman on his return to Northamptonshire following a day at the Royal Courts of Justice and Ritchie Jeune confirmed that the agreement will be paid before returning to court again on the 4th November 2013 to have the winding-up petition removed.

Kettering Town Football Club is SAVED and the Club look to move forward.  With the help and support of all the loyal fans, Kettering Town can once again, finally, become the Club Kettering can be proud of.
