Jon Conway has announced his retirement from professional soccer.

The 34-year old Chicago Fire goalkeeper has ended a 12-year MLS career that saw him capture two MLS Cups and one Nutrilite Canadian Championship.

Conway was selected by LA Galaxy in the 2012 MLS Re-Entry Draft but opted against joining the 2011 MLS Cup winners.

"After talking to (LA) Coach (Bruce) Arena about the opportunity in LA and evaluating my options, it just felt like a good time to transition out of the game," said Conway.

"It's been a pleasure to witness the growth of the sport and the league in the United States. I'd like to thank everyone who's been a part of it, my teammates, my coaches, the fans and especially my family for supporting me throughout the years."

Conway kicked off his career with San Jose Earthquakes in 2000 before joining New York Red Bulls in 2006. He then had stints with Chivas USA and Toronto FC before making six appearances for the Fire in 2011.
