Veteran Canterbury cricketer Peter Fulton's retired from first class cricket.

38-year-old Fulton had played for Canterbury Cricket for 17 years. 

In that time, Fulton had achieved numerous records including most capped first class cricketer, on 121.

"I am very proud to have played that many games and experience so much success with different Canterbury teams throughout my career," Fulton said.

Fulton's coach Gary Stead said Fulton's leaving on a high note.

"I'm happy for Pete that he finished on such a positive note. To win two titles and then the Ford Trophy and be such a dominate contributor to the game. He's had such an outstanding career and he's been such a servant for Canterbury Cricket," Stead said.

Stead said Fulton would still help coach cricket and rugby locally.
