Luke Chadwick has announced his retirement from playing football to take up a coaching role at Cambridge United.

The 35-year-old joined Soham Town Rangers in November after being released from the Skybet League Two club, but returns to the Abbey Stadium after making 18 Ryman League Division One North appearances for the Greens.

Chadwick, who won the Premier League with Manchester United in 2001, will take up the role of Foundation Phase Lead Coach where he will be responsible for players between the pre-academy and under 12s age brackets.

He told Cambridge-united.co.uk: “I’m absolutely delighted and it’s great to come back to the club that I’ve supported and love to have such an important job coaching young players within the academy.”
