Chris Plummer believes his Corby Town squad is starting to come together after they confirmed the arrival of two new signings.

Former Watford youngster Tom James, who was with Nuneaton Town last season, has joined the Steelmen for their Calor League Premier Division campaign while former King’s Lynn midfielder Jamie Thurlbourne (pictured) has also put pen to paper at Steel Park.

And Plummer has further bolstered the Steelmen’s ranks by confirming that striker Avelino Vieira has also agreed terms for the new campaign having been with the club last season.

The transfer boost comes ahead of Corby’s opening pre-season friendly against Conference Premier side Cambridge United at Steel Park tomorrow (Wednesday) night.

And Plummer said: “Tom is a left-sided player who was with Watford before going to Nuneaton after he was released.

“He was in and out of their team last season and it is a really good signing for us. He has decent experience and will be an asset for us.

“Jamie had been at King’s Lynn for some time and helped them gain a few promotions. He is another good signing for us and will definitely add something to the squad.

“I am pleased they are on board, as well as Avelino, and it now feels like the squad is coming together.

“We made a few signings early in the summer and we have been talking to a lot of players ever since. It is important that we get the right ones and there will be more to come.”
