Duo Make Actim Rankings Top 5

Duo Make Actim Rankings Top 5

The Acrim Rankings, awarding points based upon on-pitch performance, have put both Colchester United`s Jamie Cureton and Chris Iwelumo, who scored 42 goals as a pair last season, in the top five positions.

This is a great indication of the success of the club`s first season in the Championship, which recorded the U`s in 10th place, the highest league finish in their history.

Jamie Cureton, who won the Golden Boot with his 23 goals, finished second overal behind Birmingham City attacker Gary McSheffrey in the player rankings.

The U's front-runner ended with a points tally of 722, which was just 13 behind McSheffrey. A strong finish from Sunderland winger Carlos Edwards, who had begun the season at Luton Town, saw him rise to third spot on 653 points.

Chris Iwelumo, who formed such a deadly partnership with Cureton, was in for fourth position (647), while Norwich City's experienced striker Darren Huckerby completed the top five.

They were the best price - both free!! That's some good dealing as far as I c. Let's hope Chris stays and Leeds don't tempt Curo with wages!!
