Clemence retires

Clemence retires

Leicester City midfielder Stephen Clemence has officially announced his retirement from professional football.

The 32-year-old has battled with a problematic heel injury for almost two years, playing his last match for City in March 2008 against Scunthorpe.

Clemence made a total of 34 appearances, finding the net three times in his disappointingly short-lived career at the Walkers Stadium.

He will undoubtedly be most fondly remembered for his late winner in the memorable 3-2 League Cup victory over Nottingham Forest at the City Ground, a night most will find difficult to forget.

After a successful career with Tottenham Hotspur and Birmingham City where he made over 210 appearances collectively, it is a sad end to the career of a once-gifted player who possessed the ability to perform consistently in the top flight.

Signed by Martin Allen in 2007 from Birmingham City for £750,000, Clemence arrived at the Walkers with a steady reputation hoping to help the Foxes back to the top flight after two seasons of Championship mediocrity.

But we all know the script; the season ended in disaster as the Foxes were relegated, Clemence the then club captain merely an onlooker on the sidelines. It is not unfair to say that he will not be remembered for his performances during his time at Filbert Way.

Unfortunately it just never came off for the midfielder here, but he leaves the club with the support of most who wish him good luck for the future.
