McDaid Forced To Retire

Former Leeds United Apprentice defender Sean McDaid has been advised to retire from professional football due to complications with a knee injury.

The 25 year old suffered the initial problem in Carlisle United’s 2-1 defeat by Exeter City last October, only his 14th appearance since joining the Blues in May 2010.

“It’s a new and complicated injury to the knee,” McDaid said. “That’s why the medical staff have advised that I should retire from the professional game immediately.”

McDaid added: “There are so many people that I would like to thank for the way they have helped me and supported me since I came to the Club, and I would like to do that after I have had a bit of time to come to terms with the news.”

The former Scotland Under-19 international joined Carlisle following his release by Doncaster Rovers last summer but began his career with Leeds United.

He played in 105 first-team games throughout his time in football, scoring once.
