Wow that's a shock if true, always looked such a strong fit player when playing?

That is an absolute shame and I sincerely hope he recovers from whichever illness he is suffering from!

Who told you? If it was true wouldn’t it already be announced plus he’s got another year on the contract?

Absolutely no mention of Fraser who I think has been good for us this year. What’s up?

NEWPORT County AFC is saddened to announce the retirement from playing of defender Fraser Franks.

The 28-year-old, who joined County at the start of this season, has been forced to end his playing career on medical advice due to a heart issue.

Fraser appeared in 320 matches during his senior career, playing for AFC Wimbledon, Welling United, Luton Town, Stevenage and County, scoring 19 goals – including 34 appearances and three goals for the Exiles.

The Club is doing everything it can to support Fraser and his family at this difficult time and there will be further announcements in the coming weeks.

Good luck to the lad. Awful way to finish his career.

Disgraceful this was out in the open days before the announcement.

This is a real shame, he was immense for us once he settled in - he played a huge part in getting us well up the league earlier this season.

I wish him the best of luck for the future.

Yes really sad. Hope everything turns out ok for him.

Nice that he got to score in his last match and to play against Premier League opposition in his last season.
