Tommy Wright believes Kurtis Revan has “done enough” to earn another opportunity at Corby Town.

The young winger has signed up for a second spell at Steel Park and is set to be named in the Steelmen squad for their first game of the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division campaign on Saturday when they take on Matlock Town at Steel Park.

Revan has enjoyed an impressive pre-season for Corby and was confirmed as one of their latest signings along with former Notts County goalkeeper Monty Parkes.

Revan, who came through the Derby County academy, had a previous stint at Steel Park but fell out of favour.

But boss Wright is now backing him to force his way into the starting 11.

“He is still a young lad and people probably forget that,” the Steelmen manager said.

“Kurtis is one of those players who can be on fire one minute and then drift out of a game in the next.

“He has definitely done enough to earn a second crack at it.

“He is capable of changing games but it’s now up to him to try to earn a place in the starting line-up.”

Wright has also made an addition to his coaching staff with former Manchester United player Eddie Johnson joining the club.

Johnson has spent the last two seasons in charge of Dundee’s under-20s side.

And Wright added: “I have known Eddie a long time, he has gone through his coaching badges and was with Dundee last year.

“I have kept in touch with him over the past 12 years and I am pleased he’s here. He brings a lot to the table.

“He’s played at top clubs and with the academy players, in particular, he is someone for them to look up to.”
