Steve Magoffin spent his final season with Worcestershire after leaving Sussex at the end of 2017

Worcestershire’s Australian seamer Steve Magoffin has retired from all forms of cricket at the age of 38.

He will remain at New Road as a coach in Worcestershire’s academy system.

Magoffin, who first joined Worcestershire in 2008, re-signed from Sussex at the start of the 2018 season but has made only six Championship appearances for the county this summer.

He also played for Surrey at county level for five years from 2012-17, but never represented Australia.

“Like every professional cricketer there are things you want to achieve and, like everyone, I had aspirations to play at the absolute highest level,” Magoffin told the club website.
