Description

South Bank, Wearside born outside right Jack Curtis played junior football for Eston United in 1904 and South Bank St Peter’s in 1905 before joining local First Division professional club Sunderland in 1906, making his Football League debut against Sheffield Wednesday that December. However it proved his only appearance for them and he returned to non league football joining South Bank and then Shildon Athletic in 1907 but returned to The Football League with Gainsborough Trinity in the summer of 1908, scoring twice in 32 appearances for The Hillmen in 1908-09 and impressed enough for Tottenham Hotspur to sign him in April 1909 just before the end of the season.

He scored on his Spurs debut in a 3-0 win over Bradford Park Avenue as Spurs won promotion to the First Division as Second Division runners up. He then spent four seasons playing in the First Division for Spurs, initially as a regular first teamer but from 1911 on an increasingly irregular basis. By the time he joined Fulham in the summer of 1913 he had scored 5 goals in 87 appearances for Spurs, but he only played twice in his spell at Craven Cottage before joining Southern League club Brentford in 1914, for whom he scored once in 16 appearances.

He returned north later the same year to join Stockport County and played 15 times, scoring once, for The Hatters in the final season before peacetime football’s suspension due to the onset of the First World War in May 1915, during which he served in the Armed Forces as a driver in The Royal Field Artillery. After the War he joined Middlesbrough in 1919, making 5 appearances in the First Division before Christmas 1919, re-joining non league Shildon Athletic in 1920, his final known club before his eventual retirement.
