Curtis said on twitter he was delighted to have joined his hometown club and was welcomed by team mate James Dixon.
Gavin Chesterfield, Barry Town United Manager, provided the following comment:
“Curtis is a player with a very good pedigree and someone I’m excited to work with. He has shown a great desire to join his hometown club and we’re delighted to have him. It’s always difficult when a player leaves full time football but as a club we will support him through this transition and do everything we can to continue his development as I believe there is a lot more to come from him.”
We look forward to seeing Curtis in action over the coming weeks. UP THE TOWN!!
