Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Corr started his career at St. Anthony's, Kilcoole before moving to Leeds United, and then onto Sheffield Wednesday. At Wednesday he spent loan spells with Bristol City and Swindon Town.[2][3][4] He signed for Swindon on a permanent basis at the start of the 2007–08 season, later moving to Exeter City in July 2009. He left the club at the end of the season.[5]

Southend United[edit]

Corr signed for Southend United on 9 July 2010 along with Peter Gilbert, both of whom had played previously for Southend's manager Paul Sturrock at Sheffield Wednesday.[6] From 47 appearances he netted 21 goals for the Shrimpers, making him the club's highest scorer that season.[7] He missed the whole of the 2011–12 season due to an ongoing knee injury,[8] and returned on 22 September 2012 to score against former club Exeter. He spent most of the 2012–13 season asa substitute, but became a mainstay of the team the following season as Sturrock was replaced by Phil Brown.[9] He signed a new two-year deal with Southend at the end of the season,[10] and made his 150th appearance for the Blues on 27 September 2014 against Shrewsbury.[11]

Cambridge United[edit]

Corr signed a two-year deal with Cambridge United on 2 June 2015.[12] He made his debut for the U's on the opening day of the 2015-16 season, scoring twice in a 3-0 victory over Newport County. His season was cut short in January 2016 as he had to undergo knee surgery.[13] He was released by the club at the end of his contract.[14]
