Retirement

20 July 2014 - 04:16 PM

I officially retired from playing the great game of Rugby League at the grand old age of 33 this weekend. Unfortunately got cleaned out playing in the East 9s earlier this season and been suffering from neck and back injuries since; not worth risking my health and career continuing to play the game.

That said since having played the game since the age of 7, I've had some wonderful experiences and met some great folk at clubs across the country. I've played for Pilkington Recs, Newcastle University, Northeast Students, Northallerton Stallions, and Kings Lynn Black Knights plus individual matches for Gosport Vikings, Leeds Akkies, Hemel Stags and RMA Sandhurst. Great memories!

Eventually I'll get into coaching when settled somewhere in the UK but wondered when everyone else retired, at what age and who you used to play for?
