Tommy Wright believes his Corby Town squad for the new Vanarama National League North season is close to being complete.

The Steelmen boss, who led the club to a memorable Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division title last season, is hoping to add “one or two more” over the course of the summer as the countdown to the new campaign begins.

The Corby players report back for pre-season training on Saturday and Wright confirmed he will also be taking a close look at the loan market during his preparations.

“It will be good to get them all back in this weekend, it’s been a long wait,” the Corby boss said.

“I am looking forward to working with all of them again and it will be exciting to integrate the new boys into the group.

“I would imagine we are looking at maybe one or two more to come in.

“We have a budget to work to so we have to realistic but I think it’s fair to assume that one of those new arrivals will be an attacking player.

“We will also be looking at loan market and, in particular, youth loans.

“I am hoping the friendly we have with Leicester City will be a chance to see if there is anything on offer for us and, with us going up a league, I think it will be easier to convince clubs to let us have their young players.

“To be honest, the squad is actually nearing completion. I will have a strong core of 14 senior players and seven or eight young lads who will be more than capable of performing at the level.”
