Getting to Know the Steelmen

3 months ago By James McCafferty

Throughout the season we will be giving you an insight into the Corby Town team, and where better to start than with the new manager!

Already known to the steelmen fans, David Bell was seen as one of the players of the season last term. It was the presence of Bell in the starting 11 that saw Corby turn a corner after boxing day, and almost helped pull off what many people were calling an impossible aim.

After spending the majority of his career in the football league, jumping from league two with Rushden and Diamonds, up to the Championship with Luton Town, enjoying spells at Leicester, Norwich and Coventry City, Bell has now moved into management, and is relishing the prospect of getting Corby promoted after two very difficult seasons on the pitch.

Best Club you have played at and why?

I have been fortunate to play at some very good clubs like Coventry city,Norwich city, Leicester city all with great facilities but where I enjoyed my football the most would have to be Luton Town fc

Best manager you have played under and why?

Chris Coleman! His man management was different class

Best Player you have played with and why?

Ryan Bertrand, he's a top player and has gone onto play for England as well

Toughest opponent you have played against and why?

Steven Gerrard, he's the complete player! He can do everything on a football pitch, he's tough as well and don't mind a tackle!

Best Ground you have played at?

Anfield. The atmosphere was unreal and the Kop clapped us off at the end showing real class.

If you could play with any player from the past or present, who and why?

Gazza! He was an absolute genius but what a laugh he would be to play with as well!

Funniest team-mate, and why?

John Dempster funniest guy I've ever met, we played together at Rushden & Diamonds and he's also a Corby lad!
