Who Is Curtis Shaw?

Last updated : 12 January 2011 By Neil Hobbs

Ex Mansfield midfielder Curtis Shaw will have a run out against Hull City today.  The former Exeter City triallist is best described as a ‘Stefan Oakes’ style of player. , classy Curtis was behind Carlton United’s unbeaten run prior to the big freeze that has seen them go second in the Evo-Stik first Division South.  

The big questions are can he make the step up and impose himself on games. Remember Stefan Oakes was a class above, but the bear pit of a League Two relegation fight had the fans turning on him as his confidence and form crumbled.

The 23 year old is one of the successes of the Unity Football Partnership in Nottingham. He was unable to crack the BSP Premier, his highest level to date. Having signed from Bromley in June 09, Curtis debuted at AFC Wimbledon for the Stags this time last year making just two appearances before moving on.

‘He never got a fair crack, difficult time difficult circumstances’ an ex Imp / Stag told us ‘Next to a big ball winner this lad can peel carrots with the best of them.
