Former Premier League striker Grant Holt, who last season made a return to former club Barrow AFC after 14 years away, has announced his retirement from professional football.
The Norwich City favourite had signed for King’s Lynn Town in 2017/18 before a move soon after to Barrow. He left the Bluebirds last month and with a role coaching back at Norwich, as well as a World Association of Wrestling event on the horizon, the 37-year-old has opted to hang up his boots.
Former Sheffield Wednesday and Nottingham Forest man Holt was pivotal in Norwich reaching the Premier League in 2011 after six years away for the club. He then went on to score 15 times in the top flight in 2011/12, which led to some touting him for inclusion in England’s Euro 2012 squad.
