DRFC Former player forced to retire

Former Doncaster Rovers player Sean McDaid has been forced to quit through injury.

The 24 year old joined Carlisle last summer after being released by Rovers after an injury ravaged two years at the Keepmoat.

McDaid suffered a knee injury in training in 2008 that saw him make just one appearance for Rovers, against Middlesbrough in January 2010, before being released.

The defender looked to be getting his career back on track with Carlisle until a further knee injury in October last year brought a premature end to his career.

Speaking on the Carlisle official website, McDaid said, "Obviously I am devastated because I was really starting to enjoy my football here. It`s a new and complicated injury to the knee and that`s why the medical staff have advised that I should retire from the professional game immediately. There are so many people that I would like to thank for the way they have helped me and supported me since I came to the club and I would like to do that after I have had a bit of time to come to terms with the news."

McDaid made just under 100 appearances for Rovers during a five-year stint at the club and he was part of the side that brought the first ever domestic trophy back to the Keepmoat, when Rovers beat Bristol Rovers in the Johnstone`s Paint Trophy final in 2007.

He was always a steady player on the left hand side. Sad for him that he's been forced to call it a day.
