Cambridge United confirm Barry Corr will be released at the conclusion of his contract and departs ahead of the forthcoming 2017/18 Sky Bet League Two season.

Having joined the U's in June 2015, Corr quickly established himself as a fans' favourite with his early goal scoring exploits marking him out as a popular figure with the Amber Army.

However, a difficult 18 month spell which has seen Barry's match time extremely limited by injury, means he departs the Club after two seasons at the Cambs Glass Stadium.

Cambridge United Head Coach Shaun Derry commented: "We would like to thank Barry for his true professionalism in what has been a very troublesome 18 month period as a result of his injuries.

"It has been a frustrating situation for both parties and this has by no means been an easy decision to make for the Football Club.

"It goes without saying that we wish Barry the best of luck for the future."

Head of Football Operations, Ben Strang, added: "We wanted to give the process of Barry's recovery sufficient time to be well informed in our decision on Barry's future.

“Barry is a fantastic professional that has always tried to do everything he could to get on to the pitch for Cambridge United. His work ethic is second to none. He has been hugely respected and well-liked by supporters, players and staff alike during his two years with the club."

Cambridge United would like to place on record our sincere thanks to Barry for his hard work, commitment and professionalism through difficult circumstances during his time at the Club. He leaves with our very best wishes for his continued recovery and in all his future endeavours.​
