Former Norwich City striker Jamie Cureton has taken his first steps into coaching by linking up with Arsenal's youth academy.

The 42-year-old has enjoyed an impressive career, playing for 13 teams in the Football League, including two separate stints with the Canaries.

But the forward, who scored 24 goals with Norwich, is taking his first steps into coaching.

'I was approached in the summer by Arsenal and went down for meetings and it's gone on from there really,' he told the Bristol Post.

'I'm starting out at Arsenal as a part-time assistant for the under 16s and helping with the 15s as well.
