Corby Town hail from the Northamptonshire steel town of the same name, and first kicked a ball under that name in 1948. However, the works side of the Stewarts & Lloyds steel factory played in the United Counties League from at least the early 1930s, and were thought to be the basis on which Corby Town were formed. The club's nickname, The Steelmen, pays testament to this possibility.
Mark Lawrenson, who spent a season there towards the end of his career, West Ham striker Trevor Morley, who started his career there, and the free-scoring and much travelled Dixie McNeil, who currently manages fellow stripes Cefn Druids in Wales.
Corby, so they often refer to themselves as The Plastic Jocks, and sing songs about ASBOs, poor diets and nicking hubcaps to get the jokes in before their rival fans do. To that end it's always a pleasure to share a game with them, so if they're ever playing around your way, make sure you pay them a visit.
