Corby Town are the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division champions.

They claimed the title after coming out on top 3-2 after an amazing winner-takes-all final-day showdown with Poole Town.

The teams went in to the match at Tatnam level on 91 points but with the hosts having a better goal difference.

It meant the Steelmen had to win to go up - which they did in dramatic circumstances.

After a goalless first half, the match sparked into life after the break.

Spencer Weir-Daley put the visitors in front after 46 minutes and soon after Greg Mills was fouled to give Corby a penalty.

He duly picked himself up and slotted home the spot kick.

With 50 minutes gone, Corby led 2-0.

It could not last, though.

The hosts fought back and introduced substitute Luke Roberts to proceedings.

He went on to turn the game on its head by scoring twice and levelling the match.

But the Steelmen were not about to give in.

With just nine minutes remaining Weir-Daley struck again to put them back in front 3-2.

A few hariy moments followed but Corby held on to take the title and claim their place in the Conference.
