Curran cites Superblues fans as key to his signing

Craig Curran formally signed a deal with Limerick FC yesterday which will see him remain a Superblue until at least the end of the 2014 season and the Liverpudlian was quick to highlight the reasons which had confirmed his decision to stay at the club, “the way the fans have welcomed me, the way they’ve been, they’re probably the best I’ve played for and I’ve played for some decent clubs.”

There were some reports in the media about clubs interested in Craig, including Chester City but it’s something that was never in his mind “There were some rumours going around about me wanting to go back [to the UK] but that was never the case, I actually went to the gaffer and told him I wanted to stay before he approached me and it was great to get it done and dusted.”

As Craig was on loan from Rochdale, Limerick FC could only formally sign him on July 1st, meaning that he missed that’s night loss to Sligo as registration takes 24 hours to process but despite that loss he remains positive about the clubs season, as marked by the come back on Saturday night against Dundalk “It was a good win and it was nice to get back to scoring ways, it’s part of my game that I want to improve on. Getting back to winning ways in the league was very important, we’re looking forward to kicking on now and putting a good run together.”

Stating that he wants to improve on his goal tally brought the conversation to other parts of his game that might not be as obvious to the casual observer “I want to score more goals, but I’m confident in my ability and there’s other parts to my game, the other two goals [on Saturday] have come from free kicks which I won so it’s not just the goals that I bring.”
