Former King's Lynn Town wideman Jamie Thurlbourne has been forced to retire through injury at the age of 27.

The left-sided player, who has been with Spalding United for the past three seasons, has been advised to give up because of an ankle problem.

Gutted Tulips' boss Pat Rayment told the Spalding Voice: 'I actually feel terrible now, as we used to rib him a little about it and his lack of mobility.'
