Kettering Town Latimer Park 11th August 2015
For the benefit of footy fans travelling to Kettering, here’s a little bit about Latimer Park, home of The Poppies.
The clubhouse is quite large and can hold up to 150 people. The long bar has 3 real ale hand-pumps, Elgoods brewery are the main supplier with 2 regulars, Golden Newt a golden hoppy ale at 4.2% and EP (Elgoods Pageant) 4.3% a rich malty ale. We also have guest ales, this week we have Star Brewery Meteor 4.0% a traditional amber ale. The usual lagers, ciders and stouts are also available as well as Cambridge Smooth.
Drinks can be taken into the ground during matches with the obligatory plastic glass.
Hot pies and pasties, plus filled rolls available in the clubhouse. Burgers, hot dogs and chips available  in the ground.
Programmes, half-time draw tickets and merchandise can be bought in the clubhouse before the game.
The players come in afterwards to be fed and watered.

You will often see PRATS in the bar; Pharp will be the one with a lot of space around him, purely a precautionary measure. Parker will be serving food, Citra and I will be undertaking our primary role in the ale QA department.
