Corr to miss start of season for Shrimpers

13 July 2011 09:20
According to the Echo Southend United striker and top scorer Barry Corr will miss that start of the League Two season and might not be seen until the end of August! Barry Corr: Working hard on Twitter but sadly not on a footy pitch You always wonder how seriousness the inury is with big Barry Corr who we were lucky to get so many games last season where he ended up top scorer with 21 goals. Well, the present knee problem that has seen him miss both the opening pre-season victories is enough to make him miss the rest of the schedule as well as the opening games of the 2011/12 campaign. Echoman Chris Phillips has tweeted:  'Barry Corr to miss the start of the season. Might not be fit until the end of August.' So no Scottish tour for Big Baz and certainly the opening games against Hereford, Leyton Orient in the JPT and more than likely Accrington Stanley away on August 13th. Crawley Town away the following Tuesday or Burton Albion at home on August 20th may also be too early for last season's Shrimpers top scorer, we will wait and see.  No news on how fellow forward Blair Sturrock is doing with his knee injury.  Better get that cheque book out for last night's hat-trick hero Rohan Ricketts or Kyle Asante may get an early promotion to partner Neil Harris on the sixth of August or Blues boss Paul Sturrock going for a two wideboy policy with Ryan Hall and Jemal Johnson on the wings and Harris on his own in the middle. If son of Luggy is fit it would probably be just Bomber and Blair to start.
