Price, who began is career with Cheltenham Town, the moved on to Birmingham City said the difficulty in recovering from an injury has led to his retirement.

He said he will always have fond members of the club, and paid tribute to the Robins fans.

He said: "Getting injured in October and not having recovered hasn't help, and being able to dedicate myself has been hard with work.

"I love the game and love the club.

"I waited patiently to get my time to play and have had a good run of games in the last year.

"I'll miss the club and everyone who is a part of it.

"I am proud of my career, and my time at Newtown has been the biggest part of it here, and I have some great memories.

"The free kick last year against TNS was a highlight, and against Port Talbot in the play-offs.

"On the edge of my box I flicked the ball over my head and passed it off for Boundy to then score. I'm sure the gaffer would have had a few things to say had it not come off.

"I just want to thank the fans for their support of the years, it is a great club that I will continue to follow and support."

Price played 123 times for the Robins, and scored seven goals and everyone at the club wishes him well in the future.
