Kettering Town manager Marcus Law has backed midfielder Andre Boucaud to be a success as captain.

The 26-year-old is the third player to wear the Poppies armband this season, after Ashley Westwood and John Dempster, who remains as club captain.

Law told BBC Radio Northampton: "You should have 11 captains on the field but we're looking at nurturing Andre into the role.

"We want him to be the architect of driving the team on."

He added: "John Dempster is a fantastic lad, a great character and a leader. He still has responsibilities."

If Kettering want to be eligible to be promoted out of the Blue Square Bet Premier, they must extend their lease at Rockingham Road beyond 2013, buy the ground, or move to a new stadium.

"I'm fully aware of the circumstances but we're not in control of them," he said.

"The chairman and directors are working hard to make things happen. We can only concentrate on winning football games.

"When any player crosses that white line, they want to win. The ground situation has no bearing on our results."

Meanwhile, Law insists that his team will remain focused despite the uncertainty surrounding the club's future.
