Chicago, IL (Sports Network) - Veteran goalkeeper Jon Conway retired Tuesday, ending his 12-year Major League Soccer career.

Conway, 34, started his career with the San Jose Earthquakes in 2000, and won two MLS Cups before he left the club after the 2005 season. Conway then played for Red Bull New York, Toronto FC and the Chicago Fire later in his career.

He also spent time with Chivas USA, although he did not make an MLS appearance with the club, and was most recently selected by the Los Angeles Galaxy in the MLS Re-Dntry Draft.

"After talking to [L.A.] Coach [Bruce] Arena about the opportunity in LA and evaluating my options, it just felt like a good time to transition out of the game," said Conway.

"It's been a pleasure to witness the growth of the sport and the league in the United States."

Conway made 88 appearances, including 85 starts, during his career. He had 23 shutouts.
