Biography

Born in Liverpool, Craig Curran began his career at Tranmere Rovers in 2006, scoring 16 goals in 112 appearances before signing for Carlisle United in 2010.

A successful first season at Carlisle saw Craig notch 8 goals in 45 appearances and help the League One club lift the Football League Trophy.

Craig later had spells in League Two with Morecambe, Rochdale, Chester, Limerick, and Nuneaton Town.

In January 2015, the striker signed for Ross County, then under the management of Jim McIntyre. Craig scored 5 goals in 19 games to help steer County away from the relegation zone. Although injuries forced his absence from County’s league cup victory in 2015/2016, Craig scored 29 goals in 118 appearances for the Highland outfit.

Craig departed County in the summer of 2018 following their relegation to the Championship, and signed for Dundee United. After 3 goals in 16 games for United during the first half of the season, Craig crossed the road to sign for Dundee in January 2019.

At Dens, he once again linked up with his manager at Ross County, Jim McIntyre.

The striker failed to score a goal in the rest of season as the Dees were relegated. Craig then started the following season with 1 goal from 3 appearances in the Betfred Cup group stage before leaving the club in September 2019.

In January 2020, the striker signed for Welsh club Connah’s Quay Nomads.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Craig was born on this date in Liverpool.

  • Signed For Dundee

    Born in Liverpool, Craig Curran began his career at Tranmere Rovers in 2006, scoring 16 goals in 112 appearances before signing for Carlisle United in 2010.

  • The first competitive match of the season ended in highly satisfactory style for new manager James McPake with a 3-0 Betfred Cup win over Raith Rovers in Kirkcaldy. Andrew Nelson scored twice in the first half hour and Craig Curran came off the bench in the second half to confirm the Dee’s comfortable win with his first goal for the club.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee 0 - 0 Peterhead

    The Dark Blues hung onto top spot in Betfred Cup group D by taking the bonus point from the penalty shoot out after a goalless draw against Peterhead at the Kilmac Stadium at Dens Park. In a scrappy 90 minutes neither side did enough to trouble the goalkeepers, although Jack Hamilton rescued the Dee with a fine save when Ben Armour was clean through late in the match.
