Tom Berwick has announced he has left Corby Town.

The striker departs Steel Park just 24 hours after he played in the Steelmen’s shock 4-0 defeat at Cogenhoe United in the quarter-finals of the NFA Hillier Senior Cup.

The full reasons for his decision to leave remain somewhat unclear but Corby joint-manager Andrew Wilson confirmed the news when asked.

Wilson added: “We are very disappointed that we have lost Tom. We made him the highest paid non-contract player at the club four weeks ago and now he has left, it is very disappointing for us.”

A statement from the club also followed and said: “Striker Tom Berwick has made the decision to leave Corby Town Football Club with immediate effect.

“The Steelmen’s leading goalscorer leaves Steel Park just over a month after signing a new deal with the club.

“On behalf of everybody at Corby Town we would like to wish Tommy the best in his future career.”

Berwick had been a massive hit with the Steelmen faithful after joining from Leamington in the summer.

He hit 10 goals, which included a remarkable six-minute hat-trick in the 3-1 win over Bashley in September while his last goals for the Steelmen were the two he scored late on to seal a 3-1 victory at Redditch United nearly two weeks ago.
