Corby Town boss Gary Mills has no doubts that Joe Iaciofano has a ‘bright future in front of him’ after the Cobblers youngster played a starring role for the Steelmen at the weekend.
The 18-year-old has been impressive since joining Corby on a work experience deal from Sixfields, but he took it to the next level on Saturday.
Iaciofano scored two and created another in a man-of-the-match display as Corby hit five second-half goals to claim a crucial 5-1 victory over relegation rivals Sutton Coldfield Town.
The win moved the Steelmen back out of the relegation zone as they bid to avoid the drop from the Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division.
Mills was full of praise for youngster Iaciofano and also expressed his gratitude to Cobblers boss Justin Edinburgh for allowing him to join Corby and assist in their bid for the great escape.
“I thought he was outstanding,” the Steelmen boss said when asked about Iaciofano’s display.
“He’s everything that centre-halves at this level don’t want to play against.
“He is sharp, he’s got a great attitude, a great will to work and he listens,
“I am really grateful to Justin and Northampton for trusting us with him because they do speak very highly of him.
“For them to send him to this club is a huge compliment to us and I think he has a really bright future in front of him.”
