Former Tyrone star Enda McGinley has been forced to retire from football due to a neck injury.

McGinley suffered the injury in a club game last month. It is thought to be related to the injury he suffered in the 2003 All-Ireland final against Armagh.

The 32-year-old retired from the inter-county game in 2011, after winning three All-Ireland medals during his career.

A year later he captained Errigal Ciaran to a Tyrone SFC title, but the 2012 championship proved to be his last.

He fell heavily while playing for Errigal in a league game against Moy, and following medical advice, has decided to call it a day.
