Corby lead way in non league app
Blue Square Bet North side Corby Town have launched their new smart phone app on Apple and Android platforms, and in doing so have become the first club outside the top twodivisions of English football to have their own dedicated handheld portal.

The new app features club news, photos and videosThe app Director Graham Starmer commented: "We are very confident that the free app will prove popular with supporters and when the new season kicks-off they'll be a further update to include player profiles, fixtures and league tablefunctionality within it.
"This is one of a number of innovative and ground breaking ideas we have been working onand we're grateful, once again, for the support and hard work of our media partners, FinalThird Sports Media, in ensuring that this has been possible. It is our aim to set the standards at Corby Town, both on and off the field, and we feel that we have done that with the launch of this app
