Former MK Dons double winning defender Sean O’Hanlon has announced his retirement from football after being without a club for 18 months.

The 35-year-old had a five year spell at the Dons between 2006 and 2011 making 182 appearances, scoring 17 goals.

He was part of Paul Ince’s team which won the League Two and Johnstone’s Paint Trophy double, scoring in the final of the latter at Wembley Stadium against Grimsby Town.

O’Hanlon started his career in the Everton academy before moving onto Swindon Town, first on loan and then permanently.

After leaving the Dons at the end of the 2010/11 season he joined Scottish side Hibernian, before a spell at Carlisle United.

In 2015 he was made captain of Stockport County immediately after signing, but left at the end of the season and has been without a club ever since.

Announcing his retirement on Twitter, he said: “After 18 months out from the game, its time to hang the boots up! Thanks to my family, friends, agent, and @Everton @Official_STFC @MKDonsFC @HibsOfficial @officialcufc @StockportCounty for helping me on an amazing and special football journey and making the dream a reality!”
