The love we shared with Corby Gainsborough FC was a short-lived one. So too, it feels, was their time in existence as a club. It doesn’t look as if they’ve stayed around long enough to share their side of the story either. Even the all-seeing, all-knowing bods at Google are coming up short here – so you know we’re onto something a bit nostalgic. All we know for sure is that our two games against them saw 11 goals scored; seven by us.

That’s not bad if you’re after your money’s worth, is it? One of our 1980-1 league opponents, the first of our two games ended all-square; 2-2 the final score at Broadhall Way. It’s fair to say, however, that we dominated the second; winning 5-2 at their place. It’s about as much as we can tell you about ’em. The club dropped off the radar in 1985.


Corby Gainsborough: The Facts

Who are Corby Gainsborough?

A good question. We pretty much only have information from the Football Club History Database to go with. In 1969, they pop up in Division Two of the United Counties League. Their debut season was a strange one too. They finished seventh out of 19, scoring 103 in the process. Anyway, they had mixed fortunes; Division Two being renamed Division One in 1972 didn’t change that either. Their highest finish was second – the year before we joined the action.
