Kettering Town have recent published a club statement after a tweet from their account criticised their rivals AFC Rushden & Diamonds.
AFCR&D had posted to their followers an update on the ground grading and a fundraising initiative that they had launched.
However a quote retweet emerged from the official Poppies club account, which read, “All here at Kettering hope this is a cracking failure and you are demoted back to where you belong.
Rushden spotted it and wrote back:
This is an official statement from the club is it?

Kettering’s tweet was eventually deleted after getting plenty attention from supporters online, and the club posted a statement.
It read: “The club has been made aware of a tweet that was released this morning, regarding AFC Rushden & Diamonds.
“The board of directors wish to make it clear that this was NOT an official tweet and that the views expressed are not those of Kettering Town Football Club, who wish AFC Rushden & Diamonds every success in their venture.
“We are investigating matters.”
This was not an official statement from the club and is being investigated. It is embarrassing and we can only apologise for someone's stupid actions.
