PITTSBURGH – The Pittsburgh Riverhounds announced on Wednesday the retirement of longtime player Sterling Flunder. The veteran center back will remain with the club in a full-time capacity as a director of the Riverhounds Academy East youth training program.

“I'm privileged to have played six years of professional soccer,” Flunder said. “It was a goal set many years ago and I feel fortunate to have accomplished one of my dreams. I am forever indebted to the Riverhounds fans, the Steel Army and everyone that has believed in me.

“I'm also very appreciative of the Riverhounds for providing me with a platform to develop young people through coaching.”

Flunder signed with the Riverhounds in 2010, and subsequently made 123 regular-season appearances for the club. The 30-year-old was the longest-tenured player on the club’s roster, with his final appearance coming in the Riverhounds’ playoff contest with the New York Red Bulls II this past season.
