Curtis Fleming

Where is Curtis Fleming now?

Having spent much of his career in the Premier League with Middlesbrough, Curtis Fleming finally hung up his boots in 2005 after a brief spell playing for Shelbourne in his native Ireland.

A no-nonsense right back, Fleming was a regular starter in the Middlesbrough side of the 1990’s and made 146 Premier League appearances for the Teesiders.

During his time at the club, Fleming was unfortunate to be on the losing side in three Wembley finals in two years – the League Cup and the FA Cup in 1997 and the League Cup again in 1998.

He also played international football for the Republic of Ireland and won 10 caps under then manager Mick McCarthy.

Upon retiring from playing, Fleming spent a brief period as a match day pundit for Setanta Sports before embarking on a football coaching career.

Spells coaching at Middlesbrough and Scottish side Livingston preceded a move to Crystal Palace in 2012 where he joined former team-mate Dougie Freedman first as a development coach and then first team coach.

When Freedman left Crystal Palace for Bolton Wanderers later that year, Fleming followed him but the pair were sacked after two seasons.

In June 2015 he joined up with fellow Middlesbrough legends Craig Hignett, Bernie Slaven and Gary Pallister as a coach at their Reds Football Academy.

Fleming made a return to professional football coaching in February 2016 when he joined up with former team-mate Craig Hignett as his first team coach at Hartlepool United.

He left in December 2016 when he was head-hunted by Ian Holloway at Queens Park Rangers to work as his first team coach. The pair had previously worked together at Crystal Palace.

In February 2016, Fleming left Queens Park Rangers to join former side Middlesbrough as manager Tony Pulis’ first team coach.

He said that the move was impossible to turn down as his young family were still living in the North-East.

After just over two years back at the club, Fleming left in May 2019 following the departure of former boss Pulis.
