Corby Town’s impressive recent form in the Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division continued with a comfortable 3-0 success at Burnham.

The high-flying Steelmen didn’t look back after Cleveland Taylor gave them an early lead as the in-form Spencer Weir-Daley and Greg Mills sealed another three points for Tommy Wright’s men.

The Steelmen were without skipper Paul Malone, who missed out because of a back injury so it meant Edi Appleton partnered Jamie Anton at the heart of the defence after the pair had played alongside each other in the 1-0 win over Kettering Town in the Red Insure Cup.

Corby made a perfect start as Taylor, who was captain for the day with Malone missing, fired home an excellent strike after just seven minutes.

And the lead was doubled later in the half when Weir-Daley punished a mistake in the home defence with a simple tap-in.

It could have been more for the Steelmen before the break as Weir-Daley’s cross hit the bar before the Burnham defence scrambled the ball clear while Mills also went close.

But Mills didn’t have to wait long after the break to get his goal and put the game to bed as he made it 3-0 on 47 minutes.

And that proved to be enough as the Steelmen saw the remainder of the game out with few problems.
