Corby Town have completed the signing for former Premier League striker Leon McKenzie.
McKenzie, who has played for Crystal Palace, Fulham, Peterborough United, Coventry City, Charlton Athletic, Northampton Town and Kettering Town is best remembered for his successful spell in the Premier League at Norwich City.
Manager Ian Sampson told www.corbytownfc.co.uk; “Signing Leon is great for the club. He is at the opposite end of the spectrum compared to Sam Ives and Nathan Fox who have both signed. He has done pretty much everything during his career and has a vast amount of experience which will be invaluable to some of the younger members of our squad.
“I have managed Leon previously at Northampton and we get on really well with each other. I know that no matter who I play with him, he will get the best out of them.
Sampson also believes that McKenzie can be the man to lead the line for his side this campaign.
“The one thing that you can guarantee with Leon is goals. No matter where he has played from the Premier League down to the Football Conference he has scored goals and I am sure that will continue in a Corby Town shirt.”
