Player Profile

Kilwinning-born Currie made the left-back spot at Leicester his own for 236 Football League games before, during and after the war - where he played 123 games. He had trials with St Mirren after catching the eye with local side Kilwinning Rangers but it was Leicester who took their chance on the defender in May 1909. He didn't make his debut until the following year, however, playing in an away clash at Birmingham in March.

Currie formed back-line partnerships with a large number of players but nobody could replace him, such were his consistently good performances in that position. He was also an occasional penalty taker for the Foxes and lodged, for a time, with club trainer Harley Thompson. He was also one of the club's early union activists and played in a Players Union XI against a Manchester United/City side.

His deserved benefit match came in November 1919 against North Shields and he left the club in 1922. As a veteran, he went on to play for Wigan Borough before remaining in the area to take on a player-coach role for Wigan's reserves in 1924.

Currie was part of a footballing family. His older brother Bob played for Middlesbrough, Morton, Bury Hearts and Darlington before the war began, while his younger brother Duncan played for Hearts but was tragically killed while in action in the Somme in 1916.
