More wins will bring in more fans, says Steelmen boss Wright

Tommy Wright believes the attendances at Steel Park will continue to grow if Corby Town continue with their impressive form of later.

Over 500 were on hand to see the Steelmen beat Cirencester Town 2-1 on Saturday as they made is six matches without defeat in all competitions while maintaining third place in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division.

And Wright is in no doubt that more wins will bring in even bigger numbers as the season progresses.

The Corby boss said: “That’s what results bring.

“They have been around the 450 mark all season but the fact we broke 500 is, in my opinion, a credit to what the boys have done on the pitch.

“They are the ones getting the results and I said from day one that the minute the boys started climbing the table, the fans would come out.

“If we can have a good November then I am sure those attendances will go up further still.”

The feelgood factor seems to have grown at Steel Park this season and that only increased at the weekend as the Steelmen saw the game out with 10 men after Edi Appleton was sent off for deliberate handball while Spencer Weir-Daley and a first goal for the club from Elliott Chamberlain sealed the points.

And Wright believes the takeover by a consortium of local businessmen last summer has been the key factor behind the good feeling at the club.

“The club is in a better place and I said that from the minute the new consortium came in,” Wright added.

“They are good, honest people. They want the best for the club.

“The foundations are right and I think that is showing. Everyone seems to be pulling in the right directions.”
