St Neots Town are expected to appoint Barry Corr as their new manager today.

The former Cambridge United striker has agreed to take the job with the Southern League Division One Central strugglers, according to respected Twitter account SqueezeEast.

Corr currently works as a development coach for the League Two club after calling time on his playing days last year following injury problems.

The 34 year-old Irishman also played for Sheffield Wednesday, Swindon Town, Exeter City and Southend United during a long career in the professional game. He already holds the UEFA 'A' Licence in coaching.

Saints have been without a boss since the resignation of Marc Abbott, who returned to his previous club Haverhill Rovers, last month.
