Former York City midfielder Jonathan Greening has announced his retirement from playing.

“Jonathan had two days with us and decided to retire from football” – Colin Cooper

The 35-year-old had most recently been on trial with League Two rivals Hartlepool United but won’t now be pursuing that.

“Jonathan had two days with us and decided to retire from football,” Pools manager Colin Cooper told the Northern Echo. “I don’t know what it says about my sessions!

“He had some time during the summer with his family and came in here,” he continued. “I was prepared to sit down and talk with him about moving forward, but he said he feels as through it’s probably beyond him. That’s an honest assessment from himself.”

Scarborough-born Greening approached 500 senior games during a successful top-flight career that included spells with Manchester United, Middlesbrough, West Bromwich Albion, Fulham and Nottingham Forest after famously starting out at Bootham Crescent.

He also won seventeen caps for England Under-21 while scoring three times for his country.
