Talbot feels it's the 'right time' to retire from playing professional football

The 32 year old hung up his boots for good last week.

Chesterfield FC legend Drew Talbot says it's the right time for him to retire from professional football.

The 32 year old ended his playing career last week following a long battle with injuries;

"Some players might play games and think they could've done more. I'll retire knowing I didn't have an ounce left to give. My time's up because there's nothing left in the tank for me."

He made over 300 appearances for the Spireites during two seperate spells at the Proact, and admits he'll look back on his time in North Derbyshire with pride;

"I don't really give myself praise, I'm not really that sort of person, but I think I will look back on my time in the game and feel proud of myself."

"I'm very grateful for the memories I've created here at Chesterfield. Things like winning league titles and going to Wembley are experiences which some top, top players don't even get chance to do in their careers, so I'll definitely cherish those moments."

Talbot also played for Sheffield Wednesday, Scunthorpe United, Luton Town, Plymouth Argyle and Portsmouth.
