James Curtis Pens New Moors Deal

James Curtis will remain at The Brewery Field for an eighth season after the vastly experienced centre-back agreed terms on a new contract.

The 41-year-old defender continues to enjoy a huge appetite for playing the game and new Moors boss Jamie Chandler was keen to extend his stay with the Club into the fresh campaign.

Curtis is showing no signs of slowing down and last term made some 40 appearances in all competitions – indeed, only Rob Ramshaw and Glen Taylor featured more for Moors during 2022/23.

The veteran joined Moors from Gateshead in 2016 having played 596 times for The Tynesiders and he’s become a regular and a fans’ favourite at The Brewery Field in the years since then.

Moors’ Club Captain has now put pen to paper on a brand new contract which will mean he will once again be a key part of the squad as they plan for the New National League North season.

“Ensuring that James stayed with us was important for the continuity and stability,” said Assistant Manager, Lewis Dickman.

“The standards that James brings both on and off the pitch and the balance he has on and off the pitch are massive factors for us – his character is second to none and there is a reason he is our captain.

“This new contract has been earned on merit. He was arguably our most consistent defender last season, played a lot of games and gives everything for the cause.

“He’s a good bloke who just loves his football and that attitude is infectious around the dressing room so he’s an integral part of next season.

“He knows the blueprint and culture of Spennymoor Town inside out which is important as well, so we’re delighted he’s staying, and we know it will be a pleasure to work alongside him again next season.”
