Steelmen fans have set up a fighting fund for struggling Corby Town Football Club and a new Saturday market has also been launched to help raise much-needed cash.

Supporters are pulling out the stops in a bid to keep the club afloat.

The first market was held on Saturday at the weekend with another on April 12, and then on following Saturdays when the club is playing away, up until the end of the season.

From then the market will be held every Saturday.

Organiser and Steelmen supporter Joe Sims, a former Corby councillor, said: “All the money raised will go to the club to help them in their current financial situation.

“We hope the market will be an enjoyable family day out.”

The ground will open from 7am for sellers and from 9am for the public and refreshments and toilet facilities will be available. Pitches are £7.

Mr Sims said: “We hope people will come along and make the market a success.”

Steelmen fans have also set up a donations page called Corby Fans Fighting Fund.

Corby Town supporter Paul Dredge said: “The club is struggling financially and donations to the fighting fund will be used to save it in the best way we can.”
