Player profile

Curran was a defender who played 20 times at the early stages of Liverpool's Football League existence in the 1890's. He shared the right-back position with the legendary Andrew Hannah in 1894/95, playing 14 times to Hannah's 16 as Liverpool were immediately relegated back to the Second Division after their inaugural promotion year. The next year, when Liverpool won the Second Division again, he was first-choice at the beginning of the season but was replaced for good in October 1895 by Archie Goldie.
