Seadogs Continue Squad Changes With Corner Move

Evo-Stik Northern Premier League First Division North club Scarborough Athletic have completed the signing of striker Tom Corner, following his release from Conference North side North Ferriby United earlier this week.


The 22-year-old started out his career as a youngster at York City Centre of Excellence, before moving onto Grimsby Town when he was fifteen.

Corner went on to make fourteen appearances for The Mariners in the Conference before being released at the end of the 2010-11 season.

After a six month spell abroad playing for Racing Portuense in the Spanish Third Division, Tom returned to England and started playing again for Tadcaster Albion and then Ossett Albion, before joining Bradford Park Avenue in late 2012.

Corner spent some time last season on loan at Barrow in the Conference North, turning out fifteen times in total and scoring an equaliser against Leamington in the league.

After moving on to join North Ferriby United in the summer, Corner has found his opportunities limited to just a handful of substitute appearances for the first-team, leading to his move to Boro.

Joint-manager Bryan Hughes was delighted to bring Corner in, and sees the young striker as a key addition to the club.

He said: "Tom has played at Grimsby Town and Bradford Park Avenue, so he knows this level and what it takes. I worked with Tom during my time at Grimsby Town, and he's a hard worker and can act as the focal point of your attacking play with his height and strength.

"After losing the services of Alex Peterson recently, we needed some reinforcement up front, so to bring in Tom is a big boost for us going forward."

Corner goes straight into the squad for the home game against Warrington Town tomorrow.
