STATEMENT | Hannah Keryakoplis retires from football

Midfielder confirms retirement following injuries

23 January 2024

Midfielder Hannah Keryakoplis has announced her retirement from playing as a result of injury.

Ex-Wales international Keryakoplis, 29, signed for Wrexham in the summer and scored on her debut on the opening day of the season in the 3-3 draw against Swansea City.

After being unable to recover from injury, however, Keryakoplis – who also previously played in the Women’s Super League with Liverpool and Birmingham City – has now announced her retirement.

On retirement, she said: “It has been a very difficult decision to make after a frustrating season for me personally, but I have to be realistic about – and also protect – my future health.

“As well as what was best for me, I hope the timing of the decision will assist the Club in being able to assess their options in the transfer window.

“I am proud to have played in the Women’s Super League and to have represented my country, and was also so proud to be able to pull on a Wrexham shirt, following in my great-grandfather’s footsteps, and to score on my debut too.

“I’d like to wish Steve, the staff and the players all the very best for the remainder of the season, which I will be following keenly as a supporter.”

Keryakoplis represented Wales 20 times, scoring three goals. Having been spotted playing for her local team, Penyffordd Juniors, Keryakoplis played youth football for Tranmere and Liverpool.

She played for Liverpool, Stoke, Birmingham and Derby at senior level, before her move to Wrexham in the summer.

Manager Steve Dale said: “We would like to thank Hannah for her efforts on and off the pitch since signing for the Football Club.

“Our thanks go to the medical team and to Hannah for their work while she has been out injured, and we are sorry that she has had to take this very difficult decision.

“Hannah deserves great credit for her career, during which she has played at the highest level and flown the flag for North Wales on the biggest stages, and we would all like to wish her the very best of luck for the future.”
