Tommy Wright has no doubts that he and Andrew Wilson’s managerial partnership at Corby Town will go from strength-to-strength.

The new bosses enjoyed a superb start to life with the Steelmen as goals from Paul Malone, Tom Berwick and Josh Moreman sealed a fine 3-0 win over Barwell in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup at Steel Park on Saturday.

That earned Corby a place in the second qualifying round draw later on this morning (Monday) alongside the Skrill North and South sides.

As expected, Wright started the game and played the full 90 minutes while Wilson directed traffic from the sidelines.

And Wright is certain the dynamic will work as the Steelmen begin their preparations from tomorrow night’s Calor League Premier Division clash at Banbury United.

“I think the partnership has and will continue to work well,” Wright said.

“Obviously on matchdays, the vast majority of the shouting from the sidelines will come from Andrew but there is a manager on the pitch as well.

“But, like we did on Saturday, we will speak to the lads beforehand about what we want so they are aware of it anyway.”

Wilson, meanwhile, insists the Corby players will be well prepared for the managers’ first league game in charge tomorrow.

He said: “We had Banbury watched against Hinckley last week so we are waiting for that information to come through to us. We will do our homework and set up the team accordingly.”
