Tommy Wright is sure it won’t be long before Spencer Weir-Daley gets firing for Corby Town.

The summer signing from Boston United made his first start of the season for the Steelmen in Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Truro City at Steel Park, which saw them move into third place in the Southern League Premier Division.

Striker Weir-Daley is returning to full fitness after suffering a shoulder injury during pre-season.

And boss Wright was pleased with his contribution at the weekend.

“Spencer looked sharp and he worked really hard for us,” the Corby manager said.

“He put in a good shift for 80 minutes and now he has two training sessions this week to get fully up to speed.

“He needs to get off the mark and I am sure it won’t be long. I think everyone will be delighted when he gets up and running.”

Wright, meanwhile, was pleased with his team’s response on Saturday.

Shane Byrne’s first-half goal sealed the points after Corby had tasted defeat for the first time against St Neots Town on Bank Holiday Monday.

And Wright added: “We felt a bit hard done by after that loss, it was a game I felt we could have won. But we didn’t, we lost and we had to bounce back.

“I give the lads credit because they haven’t let it get to them, they have got on with it and responded with a victory which is pleasing.”

The Steelmen return to action on Saturday when they head to Hungerford Town.
