Former Norwich City and Colchester United defender Marc Tierney has been forced to retire from professional football - at the age of just 29.

Tierney is currently with Bolton Wanderers but has now been told to call it a day after failing to recover from an ankle injury.

He was a key figure in the Norwich side that gained promotion to the Premier League back in 2011.

“It’s obviously very disappointing, but I’ve got some great memories from my time as a player, from progressing up the leagues to playing in the Premier League."

MK Dons midfielder Dele Alli has been named as The Football League Young Player of the Year.

The 19-year-old saw off competition from Norwich City's Nathan Redmond and Middlesbrough loanee Patrick Bamford to land the accolade at the Football League Awards in London last night.

It wasn't such a good night for Ipswich Town striker Daryl Murphy who missed out on The Championship Player of the Year prize - despite scoring 24 goals this season. That accolade went to Patrick Bamford instead.
