Mossley midfielder Arron Hevingham has been forced to retire from football due to injury at just 27 years old.

The Mossleyweb Player of the Year had a pre existing ankle injury that kept him out for a couple of years before signing for the Lilywhites last August.

He had a steroid injection to help him to get through last season but by late March it had worn off. The end of season games were painful for him and the doctors say there is nothing they can now do that won't cause further problems.

Arron played youth team football for Altrincham before joining Flixton and then Bacup Borough. He then captained Flixton in their last season in existence in 2011/12 before injury temporarily halted his progress before making his comeback with Mossley.

Arron said, "I really enjoyed this season and I would like to thank everyone at Mossley AFC for the support throughout. I'll make sure I get down to a few games in the new season."

Arron made a total of 34 appearances for Mossley in the 2014/15 season.

Everyone at Mossley AFC wishes Arron all the very best wishes for the future.
