Corr and Mur­ray hit the net

Bray People - - SOCCER ROUND-UP -

TWO of Wick­low's over­seas stars were on the goal trail this week.

On Fri­day night, New­cas­tle's Barry Corr took his tally for the sea­son to 18 as he struck a brace in Southend United's 4-0 vic­tory over Here­ford United.

In the 65th min­utes of their League One clash, Corr pounced to fire home af­ter Here­ford goal­keeper Adam Bartlett had spilled a Lee Sawyer shot.

Corr then added a third for his side two min­utes later when he con­verted a right wing free-kick from Seán Clo­hessy.

The 25-year-old, cur­rently en­joy­ing his most pro­lific sea­son in pro­fes­sional foot­ball, is now just two goals away from reach­ing his tar­get for the sea­son.

Else­where, for­mer Ark­low Town sen­sa­tion Shane Mur­ray net­ted as Sh­effield United's academy side fell to a 1-2 de­feat to Manch­ester City.

The Blades fell be­hind in the 40th minute but Mur­ray drew his side level shortly af­ter­wards when he con­verted a penalty for the hosts.

City went on to snatch a late win­ner but Mur­ray and fel­low for­mer Town star Aaron Barry played the full 90 min­utes for the York­shire out­fit.
