Jamie Cureton earns a permanent stay at the park

Wednesday, 25 August 2010

Less of a surprise this one. Much-travelled striker Jamie Cureton has signed a permanent contract with Exeter City after a couple of sub appearances on a pay-as-you-play basis.

It's no secret that Paul Tisdale wanted to sign Cureton but needed to free up some money in his budget, and Cureton himself has made very positive noises about wanting to stay at Exeter.

The jury's still out on whether this is a good signing or not. Last season neither Norwich nor Shrewsbury fans were overly impressed with the striker, but he has scored goals wherever he's been and he was very impressive leading the line on his own against Bristol Rovers at the weekend. His movement away from defenders caused them plenty of problems and he was willing to put in a lot of running against them.

I can't see him displacing O'Flynn or Nardiello at the moment, although could see him working well in a partnership with Richard Logan. And you'd be disappointed if he didn't net a few this season given his record.

No word on the length of the deal, but I'd be surprised if it was for longer than 12 months, given his age and record.

The squad's looking pretty complete for this season now, although another centre-half would be nice, unless we're planning on blooding Furzer and Bennett.
