Curran, Hugh During the 1963/64 season Hugh played in the Southern League for Corby Town. He supplemented his football earnings by working as an industrial window cleaner by day and singing in local pubs in the evenings. He joined Millwall for ????3,000 in March, 1964.


Curran, Hugh Hugh was a godsend for Norwich City. Very well built and loved to get in were it hurt. Never shirked in the penalty area we were sad to see him leave Norwich. Did not suffer many injuries at City but i belive he did near the end of his career.
