FIT-AGAIN striker Luke Corbett is confident he can return to the form which saw him regularly score around 20 goals per season.

The 30-year-old joined Bromsgrove Sporting in the summer hoping to re-ignite his career which has been blighted by injury in recent years.

At his best, Corbett was scoring goals for fun as he netted 67 in 132 appearances for Leamington before making his dream move to National League North outfit Worcester City in 2011.

However, he has since been frustrated by injuries as two knee operations forced him out of action for more than two years.

Despite these set backs, Corbett has remained upbeat and he feels his switch to the Victoria Ground can put his career firmly back on track.

“I have had two operations and my fitness has not been where it should be, but now I am back to full fitness and raring to go,” he said.

“We went back to pre-season earlier than most clubs which benefited me so I have managed to get a lot of training in.

“I played my first full 90 minutes on Saturday and I feel fantastic. I feel like I am back to where I was probably two and a half years ago which is good.”

During his spell at The New Windmill Ground, Corbett and former Sporting striker Mark Bellingham scored the goals to secure back-to-back promotions for Leamington.

And the Worcester-born frontman believes he can do something similar at The Rouslers who are aiming to top Midland Football League Division One this season.

“I had a good spell at Leamington and I think Bromsgrove are in a similar position as when I first went to Leamington,” he said.

“From the outside, I could see that Bromsgrove were a well supported club which should be playing a lot higher than they are at the moment.

“I am 30 years old now and if I can get a couple of promotions with Bromsgrove before I finish playing and play a small part in getting them somewhere towards Southern League status then that would be a good accomplishment.”
