Peter Cavanagh has retired from football and left Southport just two months after signing for them to join Everton's coaching staff.

The 33-year-old midfielder had agreed to move to the Sandgrounders on a player-coach role for the season.

He will take a role coaching the academy at the Premier League side as part of Roberto Martinez's staff.

"I'm obviously disappointed to lose Peter but I understand his decision," said Southport boss Paul Carden.
