Adam Cooney has announced this Sunday's game against his former club, the Western Bulldogs, will be his 250th, and also his last.

The 30-year-old is in his thirteenth season of an illustrious career, and was crowned as the league's best player in 2008, taking home the Brownlow Medal.

“I feel very fortunate to have been able to play the game I love at the highest level, and I’ve made plenty of great mates along the way,” Cooney said.

“After many tough pre-seasons, gruelling training sessions, a few injuries and plenty of wonderful memories, I’m looking forward to the next chapter of my life.

“I’d like to thank my incredible wife, Haylea, and my kids Ash, Jax and Evie, for their enduring support over the years.”
