Former Ashes winner Matthew Hoggard has announced he is to retire from first-class cricket at the end of this season. Hoggard helped to bowl England to a historic victory over Australia in 2005 - their first Ashes series success since 1986/87.

The Yorkshire seamer played in 67 Tests, and appeared 93 times for England in all, and also went on to captain Leicestershire after leaving Headingley. He announced on his own website today that, at the age of 36, he will conclude his 17-year career on September 21.
