Veteran striker Jamie Cureton has left Farnborough to sign for their Evo-Stik South rivals Bishop’s Stortford, whose fans helped make the switch possible.
Boro were unable to continue paying the 42-year-old’s travelling expenses following his return to the club in April last year.
The former Reading and Norwich City man’s wages at Bishop’s Stortford will be part-funded by the Blues Supporters’ Club’s 12th Man Appeal.
Cureton made his debut on New Year’s Day in the 3-0 home defeat against Royston Town, which leaves the club 19th, one place below Farnborough.
Bishop’s Stortford are the 18th club Cureton has signed for after starting his career at Norwich City in 1993.
He made 29 appearances for the Canaries before signing at Bristol Rovers in 1996. Cureton played 168 times for Rovers, scoring 68 goals over a four-year spell.
In 2000, he signed for Reading and won promotion with the club from the Second Division under manager Alan Pardew. Cureton turned out over 100 times for the Royals.
He went on to have notable spells at Queens Park Rangers, Norwich, Exeter City and Dagenham & Redbridge.
