EVERGREEN former Colchester United hot shot Jamie Cureton has a new club.

The 44-year-old, who won the Championship golden boot after hitting 23 goals for the U's in their best-ever season in 2006-07, has linked up with Essex Senior League outfit Enfield FC as their player-coach.

Writing on Twitter, striker Cureton said: 'Delighted to sort out my future for the season ahead. Joining a club on the up, so impressed with the plans on and off the field. Cannot wait to get going. Hoping to add value playing and coaching.'

Earlier this year, Cureton was inducted into Colchester's Hall of Fame, along with his former striker partner Chris Iwelumo and Lomana Tresor Lua Lua.

Goal king Cureton began his career at Norwich City, before spells at Bristol Rovers, Reading and QPR.

He signed for the U's on loan initially in the 2005/6 season, before making it permanent in the summer of 2006.

Cureton went on to forge a stunning partnership with Iwelumo.

The pair plundered 41 goals between them, 23 of which came from Cureton.

That was enough for him to win the Championship Golden Boot award and a move back to Norwich.

He went on to play for a number of clubs and had been playing his football for Hornchurch, prior to the Covid-19 pandemic bringing football to a halt earlier this year.

Cureton reached the 1,000-game milestone last year while playing for Bishop's Stortford in the Bostik League.

Cureton has scored at every level of English football, from Step 5 to the Premier League and will now be hoping to continue that incredible record for Enfield FC.
