Club Career

Club(s) Began his football career at school and with Hendon boys. Signed amateur forms with Queen's Park Rangers FC while only 14, and as a central defender, but was not considered good enough to be signed as an apprentice when he left school. Currie was spotted by Chelsea FC whilst playing for Sunday League outfit, Kiwi United FC. His trial with the Stamford Bridge club was unimpressive, because he was played out of position. Before all hope was extinguished, whilst playing with Hendon boys FC, Watford FC came along with an initial six-week trial, that turned into a six-month trial, which then turned into a professional contract in May 1967. It was while he was in youth team that he was turned into a striker, and the goals quickly followed. Within six-months of his debut, nine goals in eighteen league appearances, Sheffield United FC signed Currie for 26,500 pounds. His transfer was effective on 1 February 1968, after Watford FC had been eliinated from the FA Cup competition, ironically, by his new club.
