Jody Craddock retires

Jody Craddock retires

After almost ten years at Molineux, Jody Craddock has now officially retired.

The 37-year-old defender has had limited playing time in recent years, he didn't make an appearance last season after signing a new one-year contract 12 months ago, but has been more involved in coaching younger players in the academy.

His last performances came towards the end of 2011, with a 74 minute appearance against Sunderland in the Premier League turning out to be his final league appearance.

Over his career he made 581 appearances (237 appearances for Wolves) playing for Cambridge United, Sunderland, Sheffield United, Stoke and of course Wanderers.

The Football League have officially granted him a testimonial year, where some of the money raised will be donated the Birmingham Children`s Hospital and Balls to Cancer charity.

The Birmingham Children's Hospital is of course a place close to the heart of the Craddock family as his son Toby has been treated there after he was diagnosed with leukaemia.

Speaking about his sons progress and the Hospital itself he told Wolves Official Website:

"He is currently doing really well, and the care and support both he and our whole family have received from the hospital has been second to none.

"The Hospital is always in need of extra funding to help their facilities for both patients and their families, and at the moment are involved in a big appeal for a new Children`s Cancer Centre.

"Toby is progressing really well, but is still undergoing regular treatment, and it will be great if we can help out the Hospital with their appeal.
