Gary Mills is looking forward to taking his place in the home dugout for the first time tomorrow (Saturday) when Corby Town take on Nantwich Town at Steel Park.

The new Steelmen boss and assistant David Bell will take charge of the Steelmen for the first time since they were appointed on Wednesday night.

They watched on as the Steelmen claimed a much-needed 2-0 success over Frickley Athletic, which ended a six-match losing streak and lifted them off the foot of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division.

Now Mills is hoping for more of the same and he insists that if the current Corby players show the same “desire” as they did in midweek, then he won’t be tempted to make wholesale changes to the squad.

“I am looking forward to it,” Mills said.

“It will be good to be in the dugout and giving out my instructions and hopefully it will be another three points.

“I think it would be unfair for me to say I will be bringing a load of new players in.

“The players who are here at the moment have the chance to prove to me and David that they want to be here.

“If they show the same levels of desire as they did on Wednesday night then they are telling me they want to be at this club. If they dip from that then I’ll look to bring one or two in.”

Mills, meanwhile, insists he and Bell will be “taking a keen interest” in the academy set-up at Steel Park, which was run by their predecessor Tommy Wright in a dual role as first-team manager.

“It’s a huge project and hopefully I will be involved in it,” Mills added.

“We will be taking a keen interest in the academy side of it and it’s something we will talk to the club about.”
