Armagh's Charlie Vernon has announced his retirement from inter-county football.

Vernon was part of the Armagh teams that won Ulster titles in 2006 and 2008.

He also won three National League titles.

"It has been a great honour and privilege to play for Armagh over the past 14 years," the 32-year-old said.

"I have been fortunate to have played with and against, some of the greatest players to have played our game and have met some extraordinary people along the way.

"I would also like to sincerely thank my club Armagh Harps for all their loyalty and support throughout my time with Armagh.

"It has been a great privilege to represent the club at county level for so many years.

"I look forward to continue playing with them in the coming years and hope we can emulate our success of 2017.

"To the Armagh supporters, a massive thank you for all the support over the years through all the highs and lows.

"The passion and dedication of the Armagh support has always been an inspiration to every squad I have been involved with.

"I have memories that I will always treasure and I look forward to joining you in the stands and terraces to support the Armagh team."
