Injury ends Collison career

LONDON: Former West Ham and Wales midfielder Jack Collison announced Saturday he is retiring from football at the age 27 due to injury.

The midfielder, capped 17 times by Wales, made 121 appearances during an injury-hit time with West Ham, moving to Peterborough last year to try and kickstart his career.

He made 12 appearances for the League One outfit, but has now decided to call time on his career due to persistent knee problems.
