Chris Humphrey Announces Retirement… Thanks Motherwell for “Best Years” of His Life

Ex-Motherwell winger Chris Humphrey announced his retirement this afternoon… but only after sending the Steelmen an emotional thank you for all their support.

Humphrey spent four memorable years at Fir Park, making 132 appearances before leaving to join Preston in 2013.

And while the Jamaican international represented seven different clubs during his career, it appears his fondest memories come from the time he spent in the Scottish top-flight.

The 31-year-old revealed in an emotion-filled Tweet that has been battling injury for the last few years, but has now decided to hang up his boots.

While he went on the thank Shrewsbury Town and Preston, he reserved his biggest praise for the fans and staff at Motherwell who contributed toward “the best four years” of his life.

Humphrey’s post was also tinged with sadness though, as he spoke about how the club helped him through the death of his unborn son in 2009:

A tribute which will surely touch every Well fan!

Both Celtic and Rangers were linked with the wideman during his time in Scotland, however, neither move materialised.
