'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Margetson Calls It A Day

Cardiff City goalkeeper Martyn Margetson is going to put an end to his professional career after not being offered a new contract with the club.

34 year old Margetson joined the Bluebirds in the summer of 2002, before that he had been at such clubs as Manchester City, Bolton Wanderers and Huddersfield Town.

Now the keeper finds in hard to get into the first team and has only made two appearances this season, both in the Carling Cup against Macclesfield Town and Leicester City, he is now facing up to the possibility of turning semi-pro.

He said: 'It's a shame, particularly as I feel really good at the moment.

'I had terrible injuries last year, but now my leg and back feel great. I do feel I could go on, so I feel a disappointed.

'I've had a fantastic time at Cardiff and to come back home to South Wales and finish things off has been perfect for me really.

'I would join a club I could commute to, but that limits me quite a lot down here, so I'll be looking at the Welsh Premier League next season.'
