Currie, David Just to say I left the wrong number for you Dave.Sorry. It should be 07856281861, I accidentally typed two 1's together instead of only one. Would love to hear from you mate so give me a bell sometime and we'll chat! Kev.

Currie, David In my bedroom I still have footballs given to me by Davy from Barnsley, Forest and Oldham. My dad knew him from in Thornaby. Really nice fella by all accounts. I met him a few times but was too young to remember.

Currie, David My first game was against Chesterfield in late 1987. I was absolutely mesmerised by this great player. On the opposite end of the scale i also remember coming in one night and my brother telling me he'd left so i put the teletext on and burst into tears as i read (Alan) Clarke adds Currie to spice up his front line. Absolutely fantastic player, my first ever hero and one that will live on in my memory forever.

Currie, David My dad is no longer a HGV driver :)

Currie, David Does David live in Thornaby or Stockton now and what is he up to these days?

Currie, David Davy Currie. The most modest, genuine and down to earth guy anyone could wish to meet. I haven't seen Davy for many years but he is still my football hero and great friend. If ever you read this Davy, give me a call mate. You're a diamond guy. 078562811861. Kev (Old Jake)
