Confidence high in Corby squad, says goal hero Berwick

Tom Berwick believes Corby Town’s victory at Redditch United at the weekend was a good example of the confidence that now exists in the squad.

The Steelmen looked to be heading for a point with the game poised at 1-1 with 15 minutes to go.

But striker Berwick put them back in front after Aman Verma had earlier scored his first goal for the club, which was cancelled out in the first half.

And it was top scorer Berwick who finished the job in the dying moments when he grabbed his second to secure a fine 3-1 victory and a third successive win in the Calor League Premier Division.

Corby are back in action tomorrow (Wednesday) night when they take on Hitchin Town at Steel Park where they have been in formidable form this season.

And Berwick, who ended a five-game goal drought with his brace at Redditch, insists confidence is high within the squad.

“It (the match at Redditch) was one of those games that maybe two or three months ago, we would have drawn or lost,” Berwick said.

“But there seems to be a lot more confidence in the squad and that helped us go on and win the game in the end.

“I always had a feeling that we would get a chance to win the game and, thankfully, one came for us.

“It was a real team effort though and the back four and (goalkeeper) Paul Walker have been fantastic in the last few weeks.

“Redditch came back at us after the second goal but they never really hurt us and I was really happy to get the third goal to finish it off.

“We just need to keep this run going and hopefully we can do that at home against Hitchin.”
