Darren Huckerby retires from football
Wednesday 16 September 2009
Former Norwich forward Darren Huckerby has retired from the game after suffering a hip injury while playing in America.
The 33-year-old's contract with the San Jose Earthquakes runs out at the end of the current Major League Soccer season and he has decided to call it a day after undergoing surgery.
Huckerby, still revered at Carrow Road after a five-year spell with the Canaries which saw 46 goals and a promotion to the Premier League, told the Eastern Daily Press: "I've got to give it a chance to see how it is but I'm 99% sure that I am done. I look at where I started at the bottom of the third division and I have done everything that I have wanted to do in the game."
