Tommy Wright is hopeful more members of Corby Town’s title-winning squad will soon put pen-to-paper on new deals at Steel Park.
But the Steelmen boss seems to be resigned to the fact that midfielder Shane Byrne won’t be one of them.
Wright revealed the Irishman is set to move elsewhere with Corby’s county and Vanarama National League North rivals Brackley Town looking to be his most likely destination.
It has been a busy few days for the Steelmen with the likes of Cleveland Taylor, Greg Mills, Paul Walker, Spencer Weir-Daley, Connor Kennedy and Ben Milnes all signing new contracts for next season following the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division title success.
And is expecting more to follow and he insisted he doesn’t have “a bad word to say” about Byrne, who was an impressive performer during the last campaign.
“I am hopeful of getting another one signed up very soon and there may be another quite quickly after that,” Wright said.
“But the one I think I will be losing is Shane. It looks like he will be going to Brackley.
“I really wanted to keep him but I think there are some big deals being put out there.
“He is at a point in his career where the next move is very important. There is a good offer on the table and we aren’t in a position to put all our eggs in one basket on one player.
“But I don’t have a bad word to say about Shane. He was loyal to us when Brackley came in for him in January. He said he would stay and he did.
“I am sure he will do well wherever he goes and I wish him all the best.”
