Stefan Moore has left Corby Town to join Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division title contenders Leamington.
The experienced frontman, who has been on the bench for the last two matches for the Steelmen, had already been dual registered with the Brakes and is expected to feature in their match at Cinderford Town tonight (Tuesday).
Moore was one of Gary Mills’ key signings after arriving as manager at Steel Park and he scored 10 goals in all competitions to help give Corby a fighting chance of avoiding the drop from the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division.
Mills said: “Stefan has gone to Leamington on a dual registration.
“I have got on really well with him during his time with us and he remains a really close friend. He has left for one reason or another and I wish him well.”
The Steelmen are now preparing for Saturday’s trip to Ashton United having been held to a 0-0 draw by fellow strugglers Marine at Steel Park last weekend.
Corby remain just above the relegation zone on goal difference from Sutton Coldfield Town while Frickley Athletic, who go to Buxton tonight, are a further point adrift.
And while he was disappointed with the outcome last Saturday, Mills had few complaints about the effort his players put in/
“I was disappointed with the result, everyone knows we wanted to win our remaining home games,” the Corby boss added.
“Was I disappointed with the work-rate and endeavour of the boys? No, I think everyone could see they gave it their all. But was I disappointed with our quality at times? Yes.
“We lacked that extra bit of quality in the final third and that’s what prevented us from winning the game.”
