A penalty in the first half and a goal late in the game on the counter-attack put paid to the Steelmen's challenge. Next in the league is the re-arranged visit of Sheffield FC to Steel Park on Saturday September 2.

Corby Town were beaten by three again as Basford United ran out 4-1 winners at Steel Park in a league match.

Jack McGovern scored for the Steelmen in the 40th minute but the Nottinghamshire side dominated from there to claim the points. Corby Town next play on Holiday Monday ( August 28 ) at Bedworth United.

S & L Corby lost 6-2 at home to Oakham United in their league fixture.

The Steelmen will go no further in the famous competition after losing 3-0 at Dereham Town ( Aug 19 ).

The Norfolk side opened the scoring in the first few minutes and with Corby not converting chances through the half, it was 1-0 to the hosts at the break.

It eventually got worse for Corby as Dereham completed a comfortable win on the scoresheet. Corby Town's focus has to return to the league at home to Basford United on August 26.

It was disappointment too for S & L Corby as they lost 3-1 at Rushden & Higham in UCL Division One.

S & L 's footballers are second bottom of UCL Division One after a heavy defeat on Tuesday evening. Raunds Town scored five in the first half on the way to a 7-0 win. On Saturday ( Aug 26 ) S & L host Oakham in another league game.

Corby Town have a new defender in their ranks - left-back Sam Warburton has joined from Kings Lynn. The Steelmen host Basford in a league game on Saturday.

A better second half display on Tuesday evening from Corby Town was not quite enough as their second league game of the new season ended in a loss.

Spalding United scored either side of half-time before a deflected free-kick from Ollie Brown-Hill brought Corby back into the game late on.

2-1 to the Lincolnshire side is how it stayed and the attention of manager David Bell and his team now turns to their FA Cup tie at Dereham this Saturday.
