Former Norwich City striker, Jamie Cureton has joined Arsenal as a youth coach.
The 42 year old (he’s only four years younger than me!) is still playing and is currently at Farnborough in the seventh tier of the football pyramid.
Jamie has landed a role coaching with Arsenal and will work with the Gunners under 16’s and under 15’s sides.
‘I’m taking my badges at the moment,’ Cureton told the Bristol Post
‘I was approached in the summer by Arsenal and went down for meetings and it’s gone on from there really.’
‘I’m starting out at Arsenal as a part time assistant for the under 16’s and helping with the 15’s as well,’ explained the former Canary.
‘So I’ll be working Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday and then game days on a Saturday when I can.’
At Farnborough, he is still scoring and has 3 goals in 8 appearances this season with those 3 goals coming in his last 2 games.
Obviously, Jamie has a wealth of experience to pass on to the Arsenal youngsters and now looks set for a coaching career, while still playing for as long as he can.
Good luck fella.
