The 28-year-old striker has committed himself to the Roots Hall club until 2015 despite interest from some of the Shrimpers' League Two rivals.

Corr, who scored 13 goals last season, told the club website: "I returned from my holiday on Sunday and I was flattered by some of the interest being shown in me.

"But I spoke with Phil Brown and Steve Kavanagh once I was back and they outlined the club's plans and I was very keen to sign a new deal.

"I'm glad it has all been resolved and I can now focus completely on pre-season and then help fire Southend to promotion."
