Corby Town lead the way with App launch

Thu 30th Jun 2011 | IT & Technology

Appy days for Corby Town as club launch product on Apple and Android platforms

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 two divisions of English football to have their own dedicated handheld portal.

A number of professional clubs appear on a Football League app but with Leeds United believed to be the biggest team in the country to have their own independent app that solely features only their club news, it means the Steelmen have made history with the launch of their new app as not only the first non-league team, but also the biggest outside the npower Championship, to have one.

The new app features club news, photos and videos but plans are in place to evolve beyond that as the new season dawns. It is available to download now on both Apple's iTunes and Android's market place.

On announcing the launch of the 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 table functionality within it.

"This is one of a number of innovative and ground breaking ideas we have been working on and we're grateful, once again, for the support and hard work of our media partners, Final Third 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.

"Everyone at the club is very excited ahead of our first season in our new stadium and we would encourage supporters to download the app and to keep logged on to the official website, www.corbytownfc.co.uk, for all the latest news as we near the dawn of a new era at the club."
