“Mulready and Ryan began their attacking partnership with a goal apiece"”
The Steelmen began their build-up to the 2017/18 season with a 3-1 win away to Blaby & Whetstone Athletic on Saturday 8th July 2017. Summer signings Jordan Yong, Kern Miller, Lee Stevenson, Sam Mulready and Grant Ryan made their debuts and also included in the team was former Kettering Town goalkeeper Jamie McAlindon.
It was Mulready (pictured above) who opened the scoring from the penalty spot after just five minutes and although Blaby equalised nine minutes later Corby added further goals through Michael Ogilvie in the 25th minute and Grant Ryan with ten minutes remaining.
Kern Miller and Jamie Anton formed an impressive central defensive pairing and it was encouraging to see Mulready and Ryan begin their attacking partnership with a goal apiece.
Corby's next pre-season fixture is away to Quorn on Wednesday evening and David Bell's new-look line up can be seen on home territory for the first time against Brackley Town next Saturday.
STARTING XI AT BLABY:- Jamie McAlindon; Ryan Bell, Jordan Yong; Connor Kennedy, Kern Miller, Jamie Anton; Michael Ogilvie, Lee Stevenson, Grant Ryan, Sam Mulready, Jordan Crawford.
