I’ll prove critics wrong – Jamie

Norwich City striker Jamie Cureton is determined to make up for lost time with the Canaries and vowed to prove the doubters wrong who say you should never go back.

Norwich City striker Jamie Cureton is determined to make up for lost time with the Canaries and vowed to prove the doubters wrong who say you should never go back.

The past is littered with players who have flattered to deceive when they have returned to clubs but Cureton has vowed to buck this trend upon his second spell with City.

Cureton's first Norwich stint is best remembered for scoring against Ipswich in the East Anglian derby with dyed green hair but he hopes to give fans more memories upon his second spell at the club he started his career.

“Some people say 'don't go back' but with me I never really had that first team career so my situation is a bit different,” he said.

“There will always be comparisons with what I've done before and big expectations and people are always going to question me coming back.

“But I'm more than happy to come back and hope to show the fans what I can do in my second spell here. I've always said that it would be a dream to come back and do it again. Now I've got that opportunity so I'm more excited by it than anything.”

Cureton admitted that the Canaries have changed a lot since he was first here but the family atmosphere that the club prides itself on remains.

“It's a bit strange sometimes - I look around town and I feel like I haven't been away. Friends are coming out from all over the shop so it's definitely different to joining a new club.

“But the club has moved on like you would expect it to and you just have to look around Carrow Road to realise that Norwich have moved with the times.

“Even though it's been 11 years I seem to have fitted in quite well and mingled just like I have been here all the time. It's a bit weird at times when I sit down and think about it.”
