A-League: Glen Moss hangs up the boots


The 15th most capped player in the history of the Hyundai A-League and 29-time New Zealand international, Glen Moss, has announced his retirement effective immediately.

The shot-stopper was set to hang up the boots at the end of the season, however in light of the current circumstances, the decision has been brought forward.

Moss played in his 250th Hyundai A-League match against Melbourne City in our last outing on Monday 23 March, coming off the bench to replace Lewis Italiano in the 86th minute.

“It’s a decision that’s best for my family, we’ve already settled back in Sydney and we want to be together,” Moss said.

“I’ve had plenty of time to reflect on a career that I’m extremely proud of, and I’m happy to finish on my terms.

“Hopefully the boys can kick on and crack the top six. I’ll be at home cheering them on from the couch!”

Jets CEO, Lawrie McKinna, paid tribute to the goalkeeper.

“Mossy has been a fantastic servant of the Club for the past three seasons, and an icon of the league since the early days,” McKinna said.

“While it’s disappointing that circumstances mean we have to say goodbye earlier than we’d have liked, he departs with our blessing.

“On behalf of everyone at the Club, I’d like to congratulate Mossy on his wonderful career and wish him the very best in the next chapter of his life.”
