Danny Cullip forced to retire through injury

Lewes' veteran defender Danny Cullip, has been forced to retire due to a long-term hamstring injury.

Cullip has not played for the Blue Square South club after picking up the injury last August.

The 33-year-old has reached agreement over the remainder of his contract, which was to expire this summer.

"I have seen a specialist in London and exhausted every avenue possible. They have all come to the same conclusion," he said.

Cullip made a total of 358 league appearances for Fulham, Brentford, Brighton, Sheffield United, Watford, Nottingham Forest, QPR and Gillingham before dropping down into non-league football to sign for Lewes in July 2008.

His greatest time came with the Seagulls, who he helped to three promotions, including skippering the side to play-off victory over Bristol City at the Millennium Stadium in 2004.

Cullip suffered the injury playing for Lewes in a 2-2 draw away to Newport County on 15 August 15 last year.

"I can't play to any standard. The hamstring is detached and won't reattach itself. There is no surgery to sort it," he said.
