ON-FIRE Colchester striker Jamie Cureton plotted the downfall of his old club, Norwich City, in a one-sided Championship encounter at Layer Road on Saturday.

Cureton broke the deadlock with a lethal finish, early in the second-half, to boost his goal-tally for the season to 18. The U's never looked back, netting further goals through Richard Garcia and Chris Iwelumo to seal another memorable win.“I get a massive lift every time that I play against Norwich. I got a good reception from both set of supporters,” enthused Cureton.

“I think that Norwich will be amongst the favourites for promotion next season, but I'm surprised with how well I've done, and the team has done, this season. It's hard to believe.

“Once we got the first goal, we were always in charge. I was surprised how many chances we got in the second half.

“When I was a kid at Norwich, I just thought that my career was never going to end. I took things for granted. It's a shame that I didn't have this chance as a 19-year-old, but I'm older and wiser now, and I do the right things on and off the pitch.”
