WEXFORD STALWART ANTHONY Masterson has announced his retirement from inter-county football.

The experienced net minder made the announcement on Twitter on Sunday afternoon, bringing to an end a long career between the Wexford sticks.

Masterson kept goal for Wexford in their Leinster final defeats in 2008 and 2011, and was also nominated for an All-Star in 2008.

The 33-year-old Castletown clubman has been forced to hang up his boots due to a long-standing injury.

New Wexford boss Seamus McEnaney will be forced to look elsewhere for his number 1 in 2017.
