Aman Verma and Greg Mills have signed permanent deals at Corby Town.

The midfielders enjoyed successful loan stints at Steel Park at the back end of 2013 from Stockport County and Barrow respectively.

Both players agreed terminations of their deals with their parent clubs and the Steelmen have now moved to secure both on a permanent basis.

Corby joint-boss Tommy Wright said: “We are delighted that both players have committed to staying with the club.

“Aman and Greg bring a wealth of experience of playing at a higher level and have been fantastic since they arrived at the club.

“Myself and Stan (fellow joint-boss Andrew Wilson) identified both players as additions before we had even interviewed for the job. We are extremely pleased that they are now Corby Town players.

“The supporters have already seen what they can add to our team and I am sure they will be as happy as us that they will be remaining at Steel Park.”

Wilson, meanwhile, believes another postponement is on the cards tomorrow (Wednesday) night when Corby are due to host St Albans City in the Calor League Premier Division.

Corby are yet to kick a ball in 2014 and with standing water still on their pitch following drainage issues this season, it looks like another game will have to be re-arranged.

Wilson said: “I can’t see the game being on this Wednesday if the rain continues to fall.

“There is an awful lot of standing water on the Steel Park pitch just now and unless there is a drastic change in the weather, then the only result with be another postponement.

“Although the games are piling up at the moment and the issues with our pitch have been well documented, other clubs are also having games called off just now so there isn’t an awful lot we can do about it. Most games at our level were off at the weekend.

“We will just continue to prepare the players well until we are in a position to get a game on and ensure that they are ready.”

The Steelmen, meanwhile, have re-arranged their home clash with Cambridge City for Wednesday, February 12 (7.45pm).
