Jamie Cureton marked his 1,000th senior club appearance in typical fashion, as he notched a brace in Bishop’s Stortford’s 3-2 win over Brightlingsea Regent on Easter Monday.
After a special presentation to celebrate the historic day, Cureton soon made his usual impact on the pitch by scoring a quick-fire double for his side.
The striker has been renowned for being a fox in the box throughout his career, plying his trade at the likes of Norwich, Bristol Rovers and Reading.
The Bostik League Premier Division outfit will be hoping Cureton continues in the same vein for the rest of the season as they go in search of a play-off spot.
