Kevin Ingram has agreed a deal to sell Corby Town to a consortium of local businessmen.

The club confirmed the news ahead of this afternoon’s Calor League Premier Division clash with Arlesey Town at Steel Park.

Ingram’s reign at Corby had run into problems in recent weeks with the club struggling to pay players’ wages, which resulted in a number of the squad leaving, which left their play-off hopes in tatters.

Ingram had also been at loggerheads with Corby Borough Council over money he claims the club is owed while a deadlock had been reached over plans to build a new sports pavilion at Steel Park, which the chairman insisted would help with funding the club in the future.

But Ingram now looks to be ready to hand over the reins after a short statement was released today.

The club statement said: “In the last 24-hours chairman Kevin Ingram has agreed a deal with a consortium of local businessmen for the majority ownership of Corby Town Football Club.

“There will be more information available during the next week once the deal has been finalised.”

Steelmen fans held a protest during the second half of Wednesday’s 3-2 home defeat to Redditch United, in which they called for Ingram’s departure while a ‘Fighting Fund’ has also been set up by disgruntled supporters in recent weeks.
