A busy 24 hours for Corby Town has continued with three more players agreeing terms for next season.

Following the news that Paul Malone had returned to the club and that Connor Kennedy and Paul Walker had signed new deals, a further trio of players who featured for the Steelmen last season have also committed for the Evo-Stik Northern League Premier Division campaign.

Greg Mills, who finished as Corby’s top scorer, defender Kalern Thomas and experienced forward Cleveland Taylor will all be back at Steel Park.

Thomas joined the Steelmen from Loughborough Dynamo in September last year and established himself as a first-team regular while Mills proved to be a hit with the Steelmen faithful after joining permanently following a successful loan stint from Barrow.

Taylor, who has over 300 Football League appearances to his name, also enjoyed a good loan spell at Corby from Harrogate Town last season but was forced to go back after financial problems struck the club at the end of the campaign.

The three further signings have completed a couple of busy days for boss Tommy Wright.

He said: “I am very happy that Greg Mills has committed to the club for next season. He really enjoyed his time with us last season and is enjoying his football again. He is a very skilful and direct player and is always a threat to the opposition.

“Kalern has developed his game so much in the last 12 months and has made the step up look easy. He has established himself as an ever present for me. His attitude is immense and I expect him to build on a very strong season last term.

“Bringing Cleveland back is a huge coup for the club. His experience is invaluable for us.

“He also has a great versatility in positions, is technically very good and possesses great stamina. And his positivity and character is infectious.”
