Corby Town manager Gary Mills has pulled off a huge signing for the club, with the addition of prolific marksman Izale McLeod.

McLeod joins the Steelmen having left EFL League 2 side Yeovil Town by mutual consent last month.mcleod

He started his career at Derby County, where he scored 4 goals in 41 first team appearances and spent a spell on loan at Sheffield United.

However, it was following his £150,000 move to MK Dons in 2004 that he showed his prowess in front of goal by netting 54 goals in 117 appearances.

That impressive record earned him a £1.1m move to Charlton Athletic in 2007, however he managed just 3 goals for the Valley club and was sent on loan to Colchester, Milwall and Peterborough before departing for Barnet in 2010.

He rediscovered his predatory instincts at Barnet, scoring 32 goals in 73 appearances before moving to League 2 giants Portsmouth.

McLeod has since had a second spell at Stadium:MK and a loan period at Northampton before leading the line at Crawley Town and Notts County.

He started this season at Yeovil, before departing for personal reasons after scoring once in four games.
