The Ginger Pele Retires

Ex City Defender/striker Gary Doherty has been forced to retire from the game at the age of 34.  Doc has not played this term after suffering a knee injury in pre-season.

His 17-year career spanned 501 games for Luton Town, Tottenham, Norwich City, Charlton and Wycombe, and he also won 34 caps for his country.

"It's the hardest decision for any footballer to have to make," said Doherty, who also played as a striker.

"You always hope you'll be able to retire in your own time when it's right for you, but injury has forced my hand and it's one of those things you have to deal with."

Doherty had only just returned following surgery for a displaced and broken forearm and a dislocated elbow, when he suffered the career-ending injury.

 

Good Luck Gary in all you decide to do
