Colin "Col" Curran is arguably the best left-back to have ever played in Australia. Born and raised in Newcastle, Curran began his senior career at Maitland in 1963 before moving to Adamstown (1964-1970). He established himself at international level during 1970, where he toured with the Socceroos, achieving victories against the likes of Iran, Israel and Greece.
In 1971, Curran joined Marconi. A groin injury, late in the season, put his career on hold. He returned to Adamstown to recover before heading back to Sydney to sign for Western Suburbs (1973-1975). Despite ongoing groin niggles, he was able to put in the hard work required to help the Socceroos qualify for the 1974 FIFA World Cup.
Curran played in all three group stage matches at the Finals in West Germany. He scored an unavoidable own-goal on 58 minutes to open East Germany's account during the first match. True to his fighting spirit, he gave everything he had for the green and gold.
Bunny, as he became known for his speed, made 22 A-international appearances from 1970 to 1979, scoring one goal. This design pays tribute to a Novocastrian legend. On the left sleeve, his iconic number 5 in the seventies World Cup-style.
