Cureton: Departs O's
Exeter City have signed Jamie Cureton on loan from Leyton Orient until the end of the season.
The 36-year-old striker, who joined Orient from the Grecians in the summer, has struggled to nail down a place in the starting line-up at the Matchroom Stadium - making just 10 starts all season.
Cureton netted 20 times for the Devon outfit last term, scooping the club's Player of the Year award in the process, but his return was only assured thanks to the backing of one of Exeter's local business partners, Follett Stock.
The solicitors stepped in to help fund the move with finances tight at St James' Park.
Managing partner Chris Lingard said: "The whole firm is behind the Grecians and we are delighted to have been able to support the club in bringing back to SJP such a talented player who Paul (Tisdale, Exeter manager) feels will make a massive difference in the run-in to the end of the season.
"We enjoy supporting such a great club and love the fact that it is owned by the fans with no Mr Big calling the shots."
