Curran, Hugh Always remember Hughie signing for my team Wolves and being excited as he had scored so many goals for Norwich. I was never disappointed and even now I look on him as one the finest players we ever had despite the glut of strikers we had at that time. His heading ability and style was terrific and he scored some great and important goals. Will remember always.

Curran, Hugh Loved the days at Carrow Road Hugh Curran and John Manning up front always a handful for any defenders but exciting for the home crowd

Tom Banks Hugh is now sadly in a care home.

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.

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.
