Veteran Saint Calls It Quits

JUST IN.

St Kilda's Sam Fisher has announced his retirement after 13-seasons at the Saints.

Taken at pick No. 55 in the 2003 National Draft from West Adelaide, Fisher debuted against Fremantle in Round 7, 2004 and went on to play 228 games in the red, white and black.

The 34-year-old said he felt the time was right to hang up the boots and is looking forward to the next stage of his life.

“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time playing for St Kilda Football Club and I can retire knowing that I have given my all over the past 13 years,” Fisher told the club website.

“While it will be different supporting from the sidelines, I’m looking forward to seeing my teammates and coaches enjoy well-deserved success in the years to come.

“I don’t think anyone imagines they’ll play over 200 games but I’m so grateful to have had this experience and would like to thank St Kilda Football Club and the fans for their support over the years.”
