West Coast veteran Andrew Embley hopes to play finals with Swan Districts this season and says he is unlikely to appear at any level next year.
The 32-year-old is set to play his 250th and final game for the Eagles against Adelaide at Patersons Stadium on Saturday night alongside fellow retiree and 2006 premiership teammate Adam Selwood.
Mark Nicoski, a member of West Coast's 2005 grand final side, announced his retirement earlier in the month.
Embley and Selwood played in the WAFL on Saturday, but Eagles coach John Worsfold last week suggested they would be granted a farewell game with finals out of the equation.
If he lines up as expected, Embley will become just the seventh player in the club's history to reach 250 games, joining Glen Jakovich, Dean Cox, Guy McKenna, Drew Banfield, Darren Glass and Peter Matera.
Embley has played only 10 games for the Eagles this season because of injury, suspension and form issues.
He said one last game in front of the fans at Patersons Stadium would be a fitting finale to a decorated career.
"The club has obviously known my intentions, so I'll announce my retirement next week some time," Embley said.
"Hopefully next week is my final game and it would be a good way to finish off."
The 2006 Norm Smith medallist's game for Swan Districts on Saturday was his fifth for the season, making him eligible to play in the WAFL finals.
Swans are third on the ladder and can guarantee September action with a win over West Perth this weekend.
Embley said at this stage he was planning to retire from football completely.
He said a finals campaign with the WAFL club he was drafted from in 1998 would be a good bookend on 15 years of senior football.
"I've qualified for Swans. I sort of knew a few weeks ago that that was going to be the case and I was excited about that," Embley said.
"It doesn't matter what level you're playing at, finals football is finals football.
"With West Coast not playing any finals this year and knowing that I may never play footy again after this year, I'm keen to do my bit and hopefully see Swans progress in the finals series."
