Jake Reid’s late substitution appearance for Weston-super-Mare on Saturday against Concord Rangers was the last of his career following his decision to retire from the game.
The 30-year-old forward has been struggling with niggling injuries this season and has made the decision to hang up his boots. Reid spoke of his decision:
“I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Weston. I am genuinely gutted that it has come to a premature end.
“Unfortunately my body is dictating to me that it is time to call it a day on playing football.
He went on to add, “I’d like to thank all of my teammates, Marc MrGregor and the rest of the staff and management of the club at the Woodspring, and would also like to extend my thanks to also include the fans for making my time at the club so memorable. I want to wish the best of luck to each and every person at the club for the future.”
Marc McGregor spoke of Reid’s decision to not only leave the club but to leave football. “Jake Reid has decided to hang up his boots, which I know is a tough decision for anyone to make, I admire him for the honesty in which he did so. He has had a great career and his knowledge and support will be missed in our dressing room as well as his poor banter.
