Associated Press

PORTLAND – Portland Timbers midfielder Jack Jewsbury will retire at the end of this season after 14 seasons in Major League Soccer.

Jewsbury made the announcement at the Timbers’ annual Stand Together Banquet on Sunday night. His announcement was greeted by chants of “One More Year!” from the crowd.

The 35-year-old has played for the Timbers the past six seasons, including last season when Portland won the MLS Cup.

“I will always treasure my six years playing for Portland, including the postgame victory laps on the field with my daughters and celebrating the Timbers MLS Cup victory with the entire city.”

Jewsbury is one of just 38 players to have played in 300 MLS matches. He ranks 10th all-time with 348 career games. He’s played in 19 postseason games.

He has 28 goals – including 10 game-winners – and 37 assists over his career.
