TRIBUTES POUR IN FOR ADAM
ADAM Barrett says he has been overwhelmed by the messages of support after he decided to hang up his boots this week.
The Southend centreback, 37, called time on his 19-year career – featuring almost 650 games – in which he became a firm fan-favourite everywhere he played.
“Since it came out I would be retiring, my phone has been non-stop with messages and calls, and I’ve found it quite overwhelming,” he said.
“I’m a bit of a dinosaur, so I’m not on Twitter but a few people have been telling me what’s been said on there as well. I really do appreciate it.”
