FORMER Warrington Wolves half-back Kevin Brown has confirmed this season will be his last in rugby league.

Brown, who now plays for Salford Red Devils but is currently sidelined through injury, confirmed in a social media post that he would retire at the end of the campaign.

The 36-year-old says he will be undergoing surgery on Friday in order to play as many games as possible before hanging his boots up.

"2021 will be my last year as a pro player as I’ll retire at the end of the year," he said.

“Thanks to everyone who has played a part in helping me since being the age of six. I wish it didn’t have to end but time slows for nobody, I’ve loved every minute!

“I’ll have some surgery Friday and be back as soon as possible to hopefully play plenty more times this season.

“Rugby league’s the best sport in the world!”

Brown joined The Wire from Widnes Vikings prior to the 2017 season and spent three seasons at The Halliwell Jones Stadium.

He scored 18 tries in 54 appearances for the club and his final game in primrose and blue turned out to be the 2018 Super League Grand Final loss to Wigan Warriors as a ruptured Achilles tendon meant he did not feature during 2019.

Brown can also count Wigan Warriors and Huddersfield Giants as former clubs while he won 10 caps for England.
