Michael Bridges has announced his retirement from professional football.
Bridges, who joined the Jets in 2009, admitted it was a thrill to have been a pro footballer for near-on two decades but suggested it was time to call it a day.
"When you play professionally for as long as I have you see the highs and lows of football," Bridges said.
"Thankfully I've been lucky enough to have great support around me throughout my career and I've loved and cherished every minute of it.
"Having the opportunity to play football for a living is something that I never took for granted and I’m extremely grateful for all the experiences I've had along the way."
