Chris Plummer believes Elliot Sandy is a “great signing” for Corby Town.

The frontman made his debut for the Steelmen in Saturday’s poor 3-0 defeat to Burnham in the first Calor League Premier Division game of the season at Steel Park.

Corby announced the signings of Sandy, who has joined as part of an agreement with parent club Brackley Town, and former Banbury United man Jack Ashton, who is recovering from an injury, ahead of kick-off.

And, as Corby prepare for a trip to Hemel Hempstead on Tuesday night where they will look to bounce back from their opening-day defeat, Plummer believes his club have done some good business in the transfer market.

“Elliot Sandy is a great signing for us,” the Steelmen boss said.

“We spoke to Brackley and he has had limited game time in pre-season. We have an agreement that he can come over and play some games for us and we will see how it pans out.

“I am pleased to have him on board. He has been away for a few days so it was his first time with us and he looked bright in patches.

“He knows the league, he has won it and he has scored lots of goals in it. I think he will only get better.

“Jack signed for us a week or so ago but he got injured against Daventry early in pre-season. It has been four weeks now so hopefully he will be back in the next week or so.

“He can play anywhere across the back four and was Banbury’s player-of-the-year last season so he is a good addition for us.”
