Norwich City in the EFL: Remember Jamie Cureton? Here’s what he’s up to nowadays

To many Norwich City fans, the yellow and green haircut that Jamie Cureton sported in a clash with rivals Ipswich Town in 1996 will likely have been enough to make him unforgettable. 

Cureton, who scored in that game, left Carrow Road later that year but would rejoin the Norfolk club for a second and more fruitful spell more than a decade later – one of many stops in a long journeyman career.

Spells with Exeter City, Leyton Orient, and Cheltenham Town followed his second Canaries exit and brought some of the most prolific seasons of his career as he proved his quality as a lower leagues marksman.

Dropping out of the EFL entirely brought yet more goals for Cureton, with the 46-year-old telling the Pink’Un in March that some 27 years on from his professional debut he has eyes on reaching 400 career goals in the 2021/22 campaign.

The experienced forward is now player-manager at Essex Senior Football League Premier Division club Enfield FC, who play in the ninth level of the English football pyramid (also known as step 5 of the National League System).

Now a UEFA B licensed coach, Cureton has referenced Ian Holloway, Paul Tisdale, and Alan Pardew as the managers he learned most from in his career.

Have Norwich City had a higher or lower average attendance compared to these 23 sides this season?

The former Norwich forward’s input on the pitch has been limited by injuries this term but he revealed in a recent interview with Off The Post that he wants to continue playing until either he cannot contribute to the team or his body “can’t do it”.

You feel all Canaries supporters will be hoping he can reach the magic 400 before that happens.
