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, he was a regular starter for Boro in the 1990’s and made 146 Premier League appearances for the Teesiders.

During his time at the club, he 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 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 at Middlesbrough and Scottish side Livingston preceded a move to Crystal Palace in 2012 where he joined former team-mate Dougie Freedman as a development coach before moving up to 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 before making a return to professional football in February 2016 when he joined up with former team-mate Craig Hignett as his first team coach at Hartlepool United.

He left Hartlepool in December 2016 after 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 where he stayed for over two years before leaving in May 2019.
