Barry Corr: I'm lost for words on Blues promotion

24 May 2015

Promotion objective complete for one of the current longest serving players.

Barry Corr admitted he was 'lost for words' following Southend United's penalty shootout win over Wycombe Wanderers at Wembley.

The Blues top scorer played his part in the Blues' equaliser and was thrilled to help the team to promotion to League One having been at the Club for five years now.

“We left it late and it shows the character in the team,” he said after the game.

“I'm lost for words. It's been different class and I feel for Wycombe – it's not a nice feeling for them. It doesn't matter I didn't score and I contributed to Joe scoring the equaliser. I did my part today and helped us over the line.”

And the Irishman was pleased to finally achieve a goal he set out to make when he arrived at Roots Hall back in 2010.

“This has been the aim the whole time I've been at Southend. My contract's up at the end of the season, so if it is my last game then what a way to sign off. I hope that isn't the case and we can get something sorted. 

“I've been here for five years and the fans have always been great to me. I love Southend and I'm so happy at the moment.

“I had my doubts the later the game went on but we managed to get the goal and the fans stuck with us. I hope they enjoy it because there'll be parties in Southend now!”
