Carlton defender Michael Jamison has today announced his retirement from AFL football, effective immediately.

Jamison has played 150 games and is the second Carlton player to announce their retirement after Andrew Walker played his final game for the club yesterday against the Saints.

The 30 year old has struggled with injury over the past two seasons and has been out of favour with coach Brendon Bolton this season with young defenders Lachie Plowman and Jacob Weitering preferred. 

Jamison became one of Carlton's most inexperienced captains when he stood up for the absent Chris Judd in Round 3, 2010 with just 37 games of experience next to his name. 

He was taken with pick 17 in the 2007 Rookie draft and made his debut in round 18, 2008 against Collingwood.
