Shoulder Injury Sidelines Knight

 

 

2015 Western Jets Best & Fairest winner and new Williamstown recruit Lachlan Knight has suffered an injury setback in his debut season with the Seagulls, after suffering a dislocated shoulder at training this week.

 

The 20-year old Knight will undergo surgery next week to repair his shoulder, and will set a target return to football for late July.

 

It's a disappointing blow for the 186cm midfielder from Yarraville-Seddon, who showed good form in the club's intra-club match and also the opening practice match against Casey, where he displayed some of his trademark fend-offs and bursts of speed out of the stoppages.

 

Football Manager Chris Dixon says it was rotten luck for Knight who had been impressing on the track.

 

"It's really unfortunate for Lachy to be sidelined like this in his debut year with the Seagulls," said Dixon.

 

"He'll go through his rehab after his surgery so we are still optimistic of him having a positive impact later in the year."

 

Williamstown's final practice match will be held at Burbank Oval on Saturday April 2 against Sandringham.
