Chelsea FC Women goalkeeper Lizzie Durack has confirmed her retirement from the game according to The Blues’ official website.
The Australia-born goalkeeper has opted to hang up her boots just one season after joining The Blues from FA Women’s Super League rivals Everton.
Durack was primarily used in a rotational role by Chelsea boss Emma Hayes last season and it has now been revealed that she has decided to retire so that she can focus solely on other career ambitions.
The player started her career in her native Australia with Western Sydney Wanderers before joining Everton Ladies where she struggled for first team playing opportunities.
Durack soon moved to Notts County Ladies where she was drafted in to cover for an injured Carly Telford but found herself ineligible to play under NCAA rules.
In 2017, Durack returned to Everton where she enjoyed a more successful second stint before being snapped up by Chelsea boss Hayes last summer.
Durack ends a seven-year senior career having been capped at various England youth levels. She made one senior appearance for the Lionesses at the 2014 Cyprus Cup when manager Mark Sampson gave her a six-minute cameo against Finland.
It is believed that Durack will now pursue a career in finance.
