Stonebridge forced to quit game

Stonebridge spent two-and-a-half seasons on Wycombe's books
Wycombe striker Ian Stonebridge has been forced to retire from the game because of injury at the age of 25.

After an injury-hit two years, he has been diagnosed with a condition called reactive arthropathy which causes pain, swelling and inflammation of joints.

The former Tottenham trainee spent five years with Plymouth before joining Wycombe in 2004, and also had a spell on loan at Torquay in November 2005.

He made a total of 295 league and cup appearances, scoring 54 goals.

"It's a hard decision to take, but for my future health it's one I have to make at this time," he told Wycombe's website.

"I'm retiring on the advice of the specialist I've seen frequently throughout the course of this season."

Assistant manager Steve Brown added: "He hasn't even scratched the surface of his career and to see it ended by injury is a real shame."
