New Seagull Pickess undergoes surgery

 

One of Williamstown's off-season recruits, Josh Pickess, has undergone successful surgery today to tidy up an ankle problem following ankle surgery last season whilst playing with Frankston.

 

It is predicted that the 21-year old will be out of action for 6-10 weeks, depending on his recovery from surgery completed this morning.

 

"The decision was made in conjunction with Josh and club Doctor Liam West to take the surgery now rather than at the end of the season, to give Josh the best chance to play footy at an optimal level in the back half of the year," Williamstown GM of Football Stephen Soulsby said.

 

Pickess will work closely with the medical and high performance team in his recovery from the surgery, and has been able to keep his fitness levels up over the past few weeks which will aid his recovery process.

 

"Josh has been going really well until the issue flared up and we back our medical team to make the right decisions in conjunction with any of our players to ensure they can play at their maximum capacity," Soulsby said.

 

"Josh will provide us with plenty of flexibility upon his return in the back half of the season should his recovery go to plan," Soulsby added.
