Mark Duckett and Dean Brennan have both left Blue Square North newcomers Corby Town, but the Steelmen have brought in experienced striker Lawrie Dudfield.

Defender Duckett has reversed his original decision to stay with the Steelmen for the forthcoming Blue Square North campaign and instead opted to remain in the British Gas Business Southern League Premier Division with newly-promoted Nuneaton Town.

Meanwhile, striker Brennan (right) is also staying in the Southern League but dropping down to Division One Midlands with Arlesey Town.

"I believe that Dean has been offered a player/assistant-manager's role at Arlesey Town which he has seen as a good opportunity for him," said Corby boss Graham Drury.

"I think Gary King is in charge there now and he and Dean go back a long way so it was clearly a chance Dean wanted to take."

Duckett's decision to leave comes just days after he had agreed to stay with the Steelmen.

But Drury understands the full back's reason for wanting to go.

"Basically, he called me and said that Nuneaton had come in for him out of the blue and offered him a one-year contract," said Drury.

"He felt it was a good deal and one that he couldn't turn down.

"He knew I'd already signed Tommy Jaszczun on again for next season here in any case so he felt it might be a good time to move on."

Drury signed 29-year-old, 6` 1” Dudfield, who was recently released by Blue Square South side Chelmsford City.

Dudfield (pictured above) started his career with neighbours Kettering Town and was first signed by Leicester City.

He went on to play for Hull City, Northampton Town, Southend United, Boston United and Notts County. He also had loan spells with Lincoln City and Chesterfield.

In 2008 he moved on to Cork City before signing for Chelmsford last season.
