‘Joke club’ – Fans left angry as Bishop’s Stortford say goodbye to Jamie Cureton

Bishop’s Stortford say goodbye to Jamie Cureton, leaving fans left angry and it would seem that the club’s decision has took place the player by shock too!

The 44 year old player/manager said he was told he had “no future next season as player or manager” at the Isthmian League Premier Division side.

Jamie Cureton is the only player to have scored in all England’s top 9 leagues and has incredibly played over 1000 senior games and scored over 370 goals.

At the end of 2019 Jamie had made 86 appearances and scored 46 goals for Stortford. He was on a dual registration with Enfield, and has made a couple of appearances and scored this season for the Essex Senior Leaguers.

The club statement read: “It is with regret that Jamie Cureton has left Bishop’s Stortford FC to join another Club. An offer came in for Jamie last week and after sitting down with him he wanted assurances he would be with BSFC next season as a player or player/manager, we couldn’t guarantee that at this moment in time but said we were happy for him to stay as a player for the remainder of the season.

“After a lot of thought Jamie decided it would be his best interest to leave the Club. We respect his decision and would like to place on record our thanks to him for all he has achieved whilst at the Club. He will not be severing all ties with the Club as he will continue to work alongside Jim Duggan coaching our academy Under 19 side.”

Jamie Cureton said: “It’s with great sadness that my time @BSFCTheBlues has come to an end the club have told me I have no future next season as a player or manager. I have had the best 2 years playing and managing your club I thought this was going to be the club I’d retired at but it’s not to be.

“Thank you to all the players I have played with and also managed,you have been a pleasure to work with
Thank you to all the staff members i have work with along the way your support and hard work was always appreciated. @BSFCTheBlues.

“Thank you to all the staff members behind the scenes who work so hard and do jobs that no one sees your a credit to the club and I’ve loved working along side you all @BSFCTheBlues.

“Thank you Steve for giving me the opportunity to play and manage your club it’s been unbelievable,the buzz It has given me has helped me keep on playing and also given me so many great memories. I will miss you all @BSFCTheBlues. ??”
