Corby Town have completed the signing of striker Ricky Miller.

The frontman has officially returned to the Steelmen for a second spell with the club in what has been one of the more drawn-out transfer stories of the summer.

Miller was in fine form for Corby during pre-season as he hit six goals in the four friendlies he featured in.

And boss Ian Sampson has now confirmed the club have completed a deal for the striker, who won’t be available until the trip to Worcester City a week on Saturday due to suspension.

“It has been a bit of a saga,” Sampson said.

“But the most important thing is that Ricky is joined us now. It gives us another option.”

Sampson feels his squad for the start of the new Blue Square Bet North campaign, which starts against Vauxhall Motors at Steel Park on Saturday, is now complete with the addition of Miller.

“It is a small squad but I am happy with it,” the Corby boss added.

“It is what the budget allows and that has all gone now.

“Hopefully we can stay injury free during the early part of the season but we will obviously assess things as we go along.”
