Premiership Defender Gilham Announces Retirement
Premiership defender Stephen Gilham have announced they will retire from AFL football at the end of the 2014 season.
29-year old Gilham has played 15 games for the GIANTS over two seasons after being part of the Hawthorn premiership side in 2008.
Gilham was selected at pick 16 by Port Adelaide in the 2002 National AFL Draft and has played 114 games.
“It’s been a great journey for me over the past 12 years to be involved at three clubs at the AFL level.
“I’ve been battling the last few years with injury and that’s the reason why I decided half way through the year this would be my last season.
“It’s been a real privilege to play with you guys. I’ve loved being involved with this group. I’ve got a lot of great mates in this room, and mates that I’ll have for the rest of my life.
“If this group stays together, continues to work hard, the sky is the limit.”
