I do not know a great deal about Curbo other than….makes 1st appearance this year for Wales with a 18 victory, just loses out to Mat Bower away to 19 and then again 19 at Derbyshire. Has played in the Cheshire main league for Kelsal for many years and is regular winner on the Cheshire comp circuit. Curbo has also started to pick up a few victories on the Pairs front and mixed pairs is his speciality. Playing for Cunliffe this year has seen Curbo win 8/10 and has been a massive signing for the Spice Boys.
