Jamie Cureton takes overall charge as manager of non league side

Jamie Cureton is now solely in charge as manager of Isthmian League Premier Division side Bishop’s Stortford after Steve Smith resigned from his role as joint boss.

It comes after the Blues went down 4-1 at home to Potters Bar Town earlier this week making it their fifth straight defeat in all competitions and slipped down to 17th in the table.

Cureton said after being wished luck and to take in bits of managers he played well under: “Thanks yeah I’ve learnt a lot along the way.”

The club statement on their website read: “The club can announce that Steve Smith has decided to stand down from his position as joint-manager of Bishop’s Stortford Football Club.

“Effective immediately, Jamie Cureton will assume full responsibility for first team matters, with his first game in charge being the visit of Horsham to the ProKit(UK) Stadium on Saturday 12th October.”

Cureton has been at Bishop’s Stortford since he joined them back in 2017 after his previous club Farnborough couldn’t continue to pay the player’s travelling expenses since re-signing him.

It meant that he’s joined his 18th club since starting his career back in 1993 for Norwich City.

He made his debut for them in a 3-0 home defeat to Royston Town on New Year’s Day 2018 and has gone on to scored 33 goals in 59 matches.

Clubs that he played for within his 25 year career include Norwich, Bristol Rovers, Reading, Colchester, Exeter, Cheltenham, Dagenham, Farnborough and most recently of course, Bishop’s Stortford.
