Stan Petrov announced his retirement in May 2013 but not before playing 219 games and scoring 12 goals for the club he joined in 2006. 

He scored our Goal of the Season in 2007/08 with a blockbusting strike in the 6-0 hammering of Derby before picking up both Players and Supporters Player of the Year for his performances in 2008/09. 

The following term saw him succeed Martin Laursen as captain and it was a job he took very seriously and one he excelled in, proving to be an inspiration for the younger players and a beacon of light for the more experienced stars. 

He led the team to their third successive sixth-place finish in the Barclays Premier League and also captained the side to a League Cup final and FA Cup semi-final. 

His final season also saw special moments, his goals against Sunderland, Everton and especially Chelsea proving to be vital ingredients in our successful battle to retain our top-flight status. 

His biggest test, though, was his battle with leukemia that he started waging in March 2012, just before the home clash with Chelsea. 

Petrov is now getting back to a normal life after fighting the disease with courage and conviction. 

Fans applauded him in the 19th minute of every game for a period – something Petrov greatly appreciated, offering him a source of strength in a difficult time.
