Flynn gives thanks after hanging up his boots

Paddy Flynn has issued a message of gratitude following his decision to retire from Rugby League.

The former Widnes winger most recently played for Rochdale in the Championship, but has decided to call it a day after undergoing surgery.

He said: “I’ve decided to call it a day and hang my boots up.

“Today I underwent surgery to reattach my pec major after I suffered a full thickness tear in the Barrow game some ten weeks ago.

“I would like thank everyone involved in my 25 years of playing.

“From Blackbook Royals, where it all started, to Roochdale Hornets, where it came to an end, and everyone in between.”
