Welcome back: Guyana Matthew Briggs  announces his return to playing of football and will be coming in next…..

Guyanese international footballer Matthew Briggs has announced his retirement from the sport.

The 32-year-old revealed his decision in a social media post.

“The time has come for me to hang up my boots. It’s something that has been in the back of my mind for some time now. I’ve struggled with a certain injury for many years now and it is one that can’t get better,” he wrote.

“I was advised a couple of years ago while playing in Denmark to consider retirement, but I wasn’t ready to stop playing. So, I returned to England and continued playing non-league football for a few more years. Unfortunately, the time has now come where my body is telling me to stop playing.”

He added: “Although it’s difficult to stop playing at 32, it’s a decision I’ve taken my time with, and I am at peace with it. I’m fortunate enough to have played at the highest level and captained my country at the senior level.”

Briggs started his career in 2007 with English club Fulham FC and represented England at the youth level before switching his allegiance to Guyana in 2015.

He played as a left-back for the Golden Jaguars on 15 occasions and scored one goal.
