West Coast's all-time leading goalkicker Josh Kennedy has announced his retirement from the AFL.
Kennedy will hang up the boots after Sunday's match with Adelaide at Optus Stadium, the Eagles' final home game of the 2022 season.
The 34-year-old will leave the league after 293 games in the AFL, a career that has seen the veteran sharpshooter boot 715 goals.
Kennedy will leave the game with a decorated career, having won two Coleman Medals, three All-Australian selections, seven Eagles leading goalkicker awards and a premiership medallion.
From there, Kennedy never looked back, booting over 700 goals to be crowned as the club's all-time leading goalkicker.
“There are so many people to thank for helping me on the journey over 17 years. Obviously my wife Lauren and daughters Sage and Lottie, my family who always supported me, coaches John Worsfold and Adam Simpson, club staff and of course my teammates.
“Footy and the West Coast Eagles have given me so much and I’ve loved the journey. I’ve made lifelong friendships and learnt so much from champions like Dean Cox, Darren Glass, Luke Shuey, Shannon Hurn and Mark LeCras.
“One of the biggest things I’ve wanted to do over my career is to have respect from my teammates - that’s always driven how I acted, trained or tried to play.
“My knee is a big reason for retiring. I think my drive to play is still there, but I’m realistic my body is not going to be able to take me to another season.
“To be able to farewell West Coast supporters one last time at Optus Stadium and say thank you for the incredible support over the years will be the perfect way to finish my career.”
Across 15 years at West Coast, Kennedy booted over 40 goals in 10 seasons, forming a lethal partnership with fellow tall forward Jack Darling to help lead the club to the 2018 premiership.
Kennedy is currently ranked 24th overall on the VFL/AFL all-time leading goals leaderboard.
