Ebbsfleet United defender Yado Mambo is to retire from football due to a knee injury. The 26-year-old centre back was told the bad news by a specialist after picking up an injury at the Wrexham game which, added to his earlier knee problems, has sadly spelled the end of his playing career.

Further stress from playing would aggravate the arthritis in his knee and lead to problems in later life so the advice from medical professionals was to take early retirement. Understandably, Mambo is upset to be hanging up his boots in this manner but the club has asked him to remain at the Kuflink Stadium in a behind-the-scenes role on their matchday staff.

So fans will still be seeing the fantastic personality that is the No.18 around the hospitality lounges and the stadium.
