James Curtis Honoured On Wall Of Fame

James Curtis has revealed his pride after he was immortalised on the Wall of Fame at The Brewery Field following his retirement at the end of last season. 

The centre-back hung up his boots after starring in almost 1,000 games at non-league level, ending his career with Moors following almost 300 appearances for the Club. 

A leader on and off the pitch, Curtis became the latest player to be honoured by an inclusion on our Wall of Fame which runs the length of the stadium on Wood Vue. 

“It’s absolutely amazing,” said Curtis, upon seeing the new instalment for the first time. 

“I am really proud that the Club have thought so well of me to go and do that – I have to say, it’s one of the best things that’s happened to me since I retired. 

“I had no idea at the Club was planning to do that for me, but to see it up there on the side of The Brewery Field makes me so proud. 

“It will obviously be there for years to come too so hopefully people who see it can understand what I have given to the cause, and it shows them what the Club thinks of me.”

Curtis has revealed that he is enjoying his retirement from playing so far but insisted that he would be keeping a close eye on things at The Brewery Field and would be a regular visitor. 

“I have been enjoying things at the moment – maybe I will feel differently when the season comes around, but I don’t think so at the minute,” he explained. 

“I am loving having that time at home with the family and not having to do as much exercise or running about – I think my retirement came at the right time to give my old legs a rest! 

“Right now I am looking forward to bringing my children to a few Moors games in the new season, so people will still see me around the place.”
