Chris Plummer is hoping to bring more FA Cup joy to Corby Town this season.

The world’s most famous club knockout competition has been kind to the Steelmen in the last two seasons with Graham Drury twice leading the club to the first round proper.

And Plummer wants that tradition to continue.

Corby face a tricky test as they get their FA Cup campaign under way tomorrow when they take on Evo-Stik Southern League Premier Division leaders Leamington at Steel Park.

Plummer said: “I think all managers hope for a home tie in cup competitions and that is what we have got.

“So we have to make sure we us that home advantage.

“Leamington are going well and we know it will be difficult.

“But the club has done well in the FA Cup in the past couple of seasons and we want to have another run this season.

“It is always a special competition because it gives the players a chance to shine against teams from a higher level and it can bring in good finances for the club.”

It will certainly be a tough test for the Steelmen.

Leamington have enjoyed a fine start to their campaign and sit on top of the table thanks to an unbeaten run that now stretches back 22 games.

But they were pushed all the way in their latest encounter as they needed a last-gasp goal from Liam Daly to seal a 1-1 draw at Redditch United on Tuesday night.
