Holbeach United will not be taking any action over Kettering Town’s clumsy pursuit of Jason Turner.
The Tigers, who had threatened to report the Poppies to the FA, decided to waive the need for a seven-day notice of approach.
That allowed ex-King’s Lynn Town striker Turner, who only scored twice for Holbeach, to make his Kettering debut on Saturday.
Tigers boss John Chand had threatened to complain to the FA after the cash-strapped Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division side approached the 31-year-old hitman without going through the correct channels.
Turner’s exit could be tempered by the arrival of former Spalding United striker Gregg Smith, though.
The power-house attacker, who has been with Evo-Stik Division One South side Stamford, was the second leading scorer behind Simon Mowbray at the Sir Halley Stewart Playing Field last year.
A seven day approach has gone in to Blackstones, the team that holds his UCL registration.
