Paul Malone wants Corby Town to kick of the new season in style and “turn over a new leaf” at Steel Park.
The Steelmen get their Blue Square Bet North campaign under way later today when they entertain Vauxhall Motors.
And, after suffering 14 defeats on their own turf last season, skipper Malone is determined to get off the mark early on this time around.
“Hopefully we can get a win at home and there would be no better way to start,” the Corby captain said.
“We had a bad time there last season and getting a winning start would really turn over a new leaf.
“Everyone in the squad is confident with the style of play the manager (Ian Sampson) wants us to produce.
“The pitch is 10 times better than it was last season and we want to make sure we make our mark at Steel Park this time.”
Malone, meanwhile, believes manager Sampson has some tough decisions to make as he prepares to name his first team.
“Every player has had a fair chance to prove themselves during pre-season,” Malone added.
“And I think the gaffer must have a few headaches because every player has come out of it with a lot of credit.
“But the gaffer will pick the team he feels can get the job done.”
