Corr Set For Spireites

Corr Set For Spireites

Young Wednesday striker Barry Corr is training with League One side Chesterfield with view to a loan move.

The former Leeds academy player has struggled to break in to Brian Laws' first team plans and has been allowed to train with Roy McFarland's men with a view to joining them on loan and help them in the battle against relegation according to Radio Sheffield.

And the Irish forward could impress in time to be part of the Spireites squad for Wednesday night's home clash against promotion hopefuls Bristol City on Wednesday night.

Owls boss Brian Laws said: "Chesterfield rang us last week and asked if they could have a look at him, to see if he might be the right man for them to go in and ease their problems at the moment," Laws said.

"Barry has gone there for a couple of days and if they like what they see in training they will take him on loan. They have a game on Wednesday and there is a possibility they may want him to play in that game.

"It is difficult for any striker at Sheffield Wednesday, especially when we have six of them. It is difficult to put him in the first team and therefore he is a bit deflated," the Owls boss explained.

"I feel we need to look further than Barry Corr, he has done tremendously well as a youngster but I feel his best prospects are probably away from Sheffield Wednesday and we have talked about this at length.

Corr has already left S6 for a spell with Bristol earlier this year where he netted one goal in his two starts for the Ashton Gate club - and Owls boss Brian Laws will be hoping he can get more first team experience away from the club as is also hoped of Leon Clarke at Oldham.

The 21-year-old has made seven league starts for the Owls since Paul Sturrock brought him to S6 on a free transfer from Elland Road.

He will do at Chetserfield. I can see a hat-trick coming in the next few games.

Calm down lads it's only a loan move! It's not like he's going to bang goals in left right and centre to impress the Chesterfield manager enough to buy him! Is it?
