Swans veteran set to retire after Grand Final

Saturday’s Grand Final will reportedly be Sydney veteran Ben McGlynn’s final AFL match.

The Daily Telegraph reports McGlynn, 31, who is out of contract and is yet to be offered a new deal by the Swans, is preparing to play his final match this weekend.

The former Hawthorn player is determined to make amends for the heartbreak of missing out on the 2012 premiership due to injury.

He suffered a hamstring injury in the qualifying final in 2012, and was unable to regain full fitness in time for the decider, which the Swans won by 10 points against the Hawks.

McGlynn played 44 games for Hawthon between 2006 and 2009, before joining Sydney prior to the 2010 season. He has kicked 167 goals in 126 matches for the Swans playing primarily as a small forward, while also spending some time in the midfield.
