Youngster Ben Bradshaw has signed for Evo-Stik League South club Corby Town on loan until January 2nd, 2018 from Evo-Stik League South Premier neighbours Kettering Town.

He has permission to play in the FA Trophy for the Steelmen.

Bradshaw was originally with the Kettering Town scholars before joining the under-18’s and under-21’s.

He impressed so much at under-16 level he played for the county and the England under-18 international side.

Injury curtailed much of his 2016/17 season, making just four appearances.

Meanwhile, leaving Steel Park are veteran goalkeeper Paul Bastock and forward Lee Beeson.

Bastock is reckoned to be the oldest current senior non-League player at the age of 47.

However, he has kept himself remarkably fit after a long and successful career in both League and non-League football.

He has made in excess of 1,000 games, most notably for the likes of Boston United and St Albans City and joined Corby during the summer of 2017.

He also recently signed dual registration forms for UCL side Wisbech Town where he is expected to play more regularly now he has left Corby.

Beeson had only re-joined the Steelmen a month ago from league rivals Spalding United, where he has now returned.

The 27-year-old had a spell on the books of Grimsby Town as a schoolboy but returned to hometown club Boston United`s centre of excellence in 2005.

He made his first-team debut for the Pilgrims against Solihull Moors in October 2007 when still aged only 17 and went on to make twenty-one appearances – mainly as a substitute.

In February 2009, he began a loan spell with Grantham Town and following his release from Boston he signed for Stamford in July 2009.

It was former Stamford boss Graham Drury who brought Beeson to Corby for the first time in November 2011

In all he played ten games for Corby, scoring once in a 4-2 home defeat by FC Halifax Town, before joining Worksop Town on loan in January 2012.

He remained at Worksop for the rest of the 2011/12 season and in the summer of 2012 the move was made permanent.

In February 2013 he moved on to Spalding and in 2013/14 scored 15 goals as the Tulips won the ChromaSport & Trophies United Counties League championship.

In the summer of 2014 he was one of several members of that successful Spalding side to join Holbeach United but in March 2015 he returned to Spalding.

He signed for Grantham in the summer of 2015 but then began a second spell with Stamford in December,2015.

For a time in 2015/16 he was on dual registration with Stamford and Holbeach but he remained with Stamford until January 2017 when he began his third spell with Spalding.
