After joining Dagenham from Enfield Town in August 2016 following two consecutive years as Enfield's top scorer & Players' Player of the Year, Corey went on to pick up a plethora of different awards during his spell at the Daggers.

This list of awards includes being included in the Vanarama National League 'Team of the Year' in the 2016/17 campaign, being awarded Dagenham & Redbridge 'Player of the Year' 2016/17, 'Supporters' Player of the Year' 2016/17 following a season where he managed to pick up Dagenham & Redbridge 'Player of the Month' for three consecutive months; October, November & December 2016. 

Following his move to Ebbsfleet in February 2018, Corey scored 11 goals in 61 matches as well as 7 assists and cannot wait to ply his trade in the EFL with the Exiles.

After his move was finalised, Corey said: "I can't wait to get the ball rolling. I like to get forward, I can play on the left, the right or in behind the strikers. I'm buzzing, I am really looking forward to getting started. 

I can't wait to meet up with the boys, get to know them and get pre-season underway and obviously then the season."

Manager Michael Flynn said: "Corey is a very exciting player. He is a player with lots of pace and can also play in a number of different attacking positions.

"Corey has taken a pay cut to sign and play for this football club which already shows me his desire to play well for Newport County AFC. I can't wait to see him in action."
