|CURRAN LOOKS FOR NEW CLUB
Former Exeter City skipper Chris Curran is on the lookout for a new employer - with Nationwide Conference promotion rivals Telford United his first port of call.
The Grecians refused to take a gamble on the 32-year-old central defensive stalwart after he ruptured his Achilles tendon a month before the end of last season.
And after a St James's Park career spanning almost 200 senior appearances, Curran spent the summer recuperating at home in his native Birmingham.
But the former Torquay and Plymouth player is now hoping to come back to haunt his old club.
"I'm looking for a non-League club," he confirmed.
"I've spoken to Telford boss Mick Jones who just said come along when you're fit and we'll see how things go from there.
"I played under Mick at Plymouth and I've also got Conference club Tamworth and Dr Martens League outfit Nuneaton Borough quite close by.
"I want to try and stay at this sort of level - I think I can carry on for another three or four years."
Curran's enrolment on a Physical Education course at the University of Wolverhampton - plus a family illness - have also delayed his return to action.
Once he has completed his three-year degree and added a 12-month teacher training qualification, the former Grecians star is planning to emigate either to North America or South Africa.
"My course is absolutely phenomenal," he declared.
"It's all tied in quite well with everything else that's been going on and has been working out better than anything else.
"I've been fit to play since October and should've been back playing - I haven't missed it as much I might have done because of everything else that's been going on.
"But I want to give it another go now, as long as it fits in with my course."
Although Curran (pictured) will never again pull on an Exeter City shirt in anger, he's still hoping to make one more appearance at St James' Park.
Curran added: "I'm hoping to have another benefit game down there which I'm trying to sort out now.
"I'm still owed money by the club, but I know what a hard time the people in charge down there now have been having and I want to help them out as much as possible.
"I am just pleased that they are doing so well this season and I would really like to see them get into the play-offs.
"The fans have always stood by the club and it's fantastic to see that they're still doing that in the Conference."
