Whitley Bay captain Kirsty Hunter has announced her retirement and signed off in typical style by scoring her side's first goal in their 2-1 win at Huddersfield Town in their final match.
Kirsty started playing in Scotland and made her name with Hearts and is a full Scottish international. She had a brief time out of the game after giving birth to her daughter Lauren and then moved to the North East. She had a spell with Killingworth before being a founder member of Whitley Bay's women's team in 2005.
She has appeared 119 times for the Bay and is the all time top scorer with 166 goals, the strike against Huddersfield being her 23rd of the season to help them secure the runners-up position in the Premier Division of the North East League.
Kirsty said: "After winning a County Cup medal last Thursday and still scoring goals this season, I thought I would finish on a high and make today my last game. I have been playing at a good level for over 20 years and hope I have helped Whitley Bay to progress over the past 5 years."
Whitley manager Colin Phillips added: "Kirsty has been brilliant for Whitley Bay and the script was written for her to score today in her last game. She has been prolific for years and her record at Whitley has been phenomenal and may never be beaten.
"We hope she can continue to have a role at the Club as her experience will be invaluable to the younger players."
