Liam’s targeting more goals for Corby

Liam Hughes is hoping there will be more goals to come from him during his loan stint at Corby Town.

The 20-year-old striker bagged his first goal for the Steelmen in the 2-1 defeat at Blue Square Bet North leaders Chester after joining on loan from Blue Square Bet Premier side Cambridge United at the end of last month.

It proved to be a frustrating day for Chris Plummer’s side last weekend as they suffered a second successive loss at the hands of Bishop’s Stortford as Blair Sturrock grabbed a late winner to secure a 2-1 victory for the hosts.

And Hughes said: “It was a disappointing because I don’t think the result reflected the way we played. I thought we dominated possession.

“It was a game of few chances and they have taken two that have fallen to them. We should have done better with the ones we created and maybe I have to take some of the blame for that as a striker.

“But I am enjoying playing and I am confident we can get back on track. I have had three starts and hopefully there will be more games and goals to come.”

Hughes, meanwhile, says he has had “a really nice welcome” from his Steelmen team-mates since arriving.

He is still training with Cambridge through the week while joining Corby for their Wednesday night session.

He added: “The lads have been fantastic and they are great to work with and be around.

“The club is great and I think it is capable of being at a higher level. I have had a really nice welcome here.”

The Steelmen are back in action tomorrow when they host bottom side Hinckley United, who have struggled with financial problems so far this season and have just three points to their name.

A minute’s applause will be held before the game in memory of former Steelmen defender Andy Brown, who tragically died at the age of 32 last week.

And Corby fans will also be collecting donations to go towards a brick at Steel Park also in Brown’s memory.
