Sion Swifts Ladies have confirmed club captain Kendra McMullan has retired from playing football, aged just 26.

The central midfielder was immediately instilled as club captain upon his arrival at the Strabane-based club in 2012, when she was still a teenager.

McMullan has been instrumental in Sion’s rise to the very top of the women’s game in Northern Ireland and has been one of the top flight’s most recognisable names.

Indeed, she was instrumental in the club’s only senior trophy - when she struck twice in the Irish Cup final in September 2017 to win the cup for the Swifts.

However, consistent injury problems have plagued the midfielder across the past few seasons and she has decided to hang up her boots.
