Jamie Cureton has left his role as Bishop’s Stortford manager.
The hugely experienced former Premier League / Football League striker has tweeted today that the club have ‘told me I have no future next season as a player or manager.’ The 44-year-old ex-Bristol Rovers and Reading star added that he had hoped to retire with the club.
The club have shared the following statement:
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.
