Bese undergoes shoulder surgery

 

Courageous Williamstown defender Ben Bese has undergone successful surgery last week to tidy up a shoulder problem suffered in 2015 in the lead up to the 2017 VFL season.

 

It is predicted that the 24-year old will be out of action for roughly 4-6 weeks, but should be ready to return to the field after the state game bye weekend on May 28.

 

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

 

Bese saw the same surgeon that successfully repaired the shoulder of the Western Bulldogs' player, Lin Jong.

 

"Ben was 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," Soulsby said.

 

"Ben will give us a boost upon his return in the back half of the season should his recovery go to plan," Soulsby added.
