Jamie Cureton scored on his full debut for Eastleigh last night as the home side beat Torquay 3-0.
The 41 year old joined the National League side in September as part of Ronnie Moore’s revolution at the Hampshire club. Since then the much traveled striker has seen his chances limited, until finally being unleashed.
The former Reading, QPR and Norwich star told BBC Radio Solent, “I’ve had to be patient and wait a few weeks for my chance”
“Hopefully I’ve done enough to keep my place as it’s been all about getting in the team since I joined.”
“I’m confident in my ability that if I got in the team, I could score goals.”
He started this season at Farnborough Town, playing in the Southern Counties League, and scored 8 times in 7 appearances. That prolific record was enough to prove he still had the magic touch, and he was quickly snapped up by promotion chasing Eastleigh.
With the club currently sitting in 7th place, just outside the play-off places, having Cureton back on the goal trail will help Moore’s men push on for the automatic promotion place.
