NEWS: Gabbidon retires

Danny Gabbidon: photo linked from  faw.org.ukGABBIDON RETIRES
The FAW has announced that West Ham United’s Danny Gabbidon has decided to retire from International Football.

Danny won 43 international caps in a career that began with Wales in 2001/02 against the Czech Republic at the Millennium Stadium. He has been part of the defence over the last nine years under managers Mark Hughes and John Toshack.

"
After nine fantastic years of playing international football for Wales during which I had the honour and privilege of captaining my country, and after long consideration, I have decided to retire from international duty. On a personal note, I would like to thank the Football Association of Wales for their support over the years and I would like to thank people of Wales who supported me and my fellow team-mates at every game, home and away, giving their all to the cause - true supporters! I would also like to say a special thank you to my family, friends and management team, who have stood by me throughout the many good times and very few bad times. It has been a wonderful journey." - Danny Gabbidon
