Ian Sampson will be looking to secure his first piece of silverware as Corby Town manager this evening as they visit Occupation Road to face Stewarts & Lloyds Corby in the annual Bob Cummings Memorial Cup.
The trophy has been lifted a total of 14 times previously by Corby Town captain’s over the years and Paul Malone will be hoping that he can be the latest to lead the men in black and white to victory in the Steel Town derby.
The two sides last met in July 2011, when a second half strike from Matt Rhead proved to be the difference as the Steelmen won 1-0 against the Foundrymen.
Corby Town manager Ian Sampson is expected to make a number of changes to the side which beat Evo-Stik Southern League side Bedford Town on Saturday.
Sampson told John Dunham of the Northants Telegraph;
“We played Harborough Town who are in the UCL in our first friendly and it was a good game. S&L are in the same division and I am certain they will give us another very good test.
“It is obviously a traditional memorial game and we are looking forward to it. I am sure they will have some good players, who will be keen to impress against us.
“We will probably mix things up a bit. There were one or two little knocks coming out of the game at Bedford last weekend and we will be looking to give a number of players some time on the pitch.”
