Former York City striker Craig Farrell has been forced to retire due to a serious hip injury.

The 32-year-old made 110 appearances and scored 23 goals for the Minstermen following his arrival from Exeter City in August 2006. Those included a rapid ten-minute FA Cup hat-trick, the club’s first in almost four decades in a record-equalling 6-0 victory over Rushall Olympic.

He has since had spells at Oxford United (loan), Rushden & Diamonds, AFC Telford United, Hinckley United, Blyth Spartans and Whitby Town.

Middlesbrough-born Farrell originally began with his hometown club and also had time as a trainee with Leeds United before moving onto Carlisle United.
