West Coast midfielder Andrew Embley has announced his retirement from AFL.
The 2006 Norm Smith Medal winner will play his 250th game against Adelaide at Patersons Stadium on Saturday night.
Eagles coach John Worsfold said he spoke to Embley "three to four weeks ago" and that the player had indicated he was getting to the point where it was time to retire.
"He's ticked a lot of boxes throughout his footy career. He's been one of the great players at the footy club," Worsfold said at his weekly media conference today.
Embley, 32, has played just 10 games this season because of injury and suspension.He follows premiership-winning teammate Adam Selwood and Mark Nicoski, who are also quitting the sport.
