A lively forward player who looked bright and dangerous in his first months at the club before seeming to lose confidence following a change of manager at the club. Corbett made a sensational City debut with an immediate return to Mangotsfield, the club who released him a few weeks earlier, and scoring in the opening minute with his first touches in a competitive match for City. That immediate impact saw him find the net with some regularity but Corbett seemed to suffer with the departure of Chris Burns and arrival of Tim Harris as the new manager. Increasingly Corbett found himself on the bench, and when playing he looked a shadow of his former self, often drifting wide and his body language speaking volumes about a player who seemed to have stopped enjoying himself. Corbett still finished top scorer in 2005-06 with 12 goals, but early into the following season few were surprised when the news came he'd been released. For some reason he and Tim Harris just didn't seem to click. Corbett has since linked up with Bishop's Cleeve and hopefully the drop of a division and new start will give the young striker a chance to regain his form and start enjoying his football again.

Corbett in action vs Bedford Corbett spent a couple of years as a pro with Ch#*tenham Town but despite a prolific youth scoring record and an average of a goal a game in his rare outings for the first team he still found himself released from Whaddon Road in summer 2005 with just one brief league appearance to his name. Despite being offered a new one year contract in 2004 new scum boss John Ward just didn't seem to often give the young striker a chance to find his feet in League football. Corbett had previous experience of non-league football in loan spells with Cirencester, Hednesford, Weston and Bath City, scoring 7 goals for Weston in just 11 games, but initially signed for Mangotsfield where he found a regular place in the side hard to come by. At his best Corbett was direct, fast and caused real problems for defences - also showing some ability in the air with some fine headed goals for City - and will also remember a fine free kick at Yate that showed he does have real talent. Unfortunately he adds his name to a long list of young players who haven't quite realised their potential at Gloucester.
