Cunnington joined Conference North side Solihull Moors in July 2010,[6] and having scored 10 goals in 22 appearances for the club he signed for Conference National side Kettering Town for an undisclosed fee on 1 February 2011, transfer deadline day.[2][7] He made his Kettering debut on 26 February, starting the team's 2–0 victory at home over Newport County.[2] He only managed his first Kettering goal in the side's last game of the 2010–11 season, a 3–1 home victory over Southport on 30 April.[2] He finished the season with 14 appearances for Kettering.[2]
