Antrim defender Tony Scullion has decided to bring his 11-year inter-county football career to an end.

The 32-year-old announced his decision after the Saffrons' 13-point defeat by Fermanagh in Round 2A of the All-Ireland qualifiers at Brewster Park.

The Cargin man has been an integral part of Antrim's half-back line since being called up by former manager Mickey Culbert in 2005.

He has since been a firm favourite under successive Antrim managers.

The high points of his county career were playing in the 2009 Ulster final and the couple of promotions Antrim achieved during Liam Bradley's tenure as boss.

Antrim lost to the Ernemen in the Ulster Championship quarter-finals, but caused a major upset by defeating Laois in the first round of the qualifiers at O'Moore Park.
