Bees midfielder Merrick Will faces an extended spell on the sidelines with a knee injury sustained in our FA Women’s Championship victory over Charlton Athletic.

The Club arranged for scans to take place in the immediate days following the match and they have revealed that our stand in skipper has an ACL injury which will see her out for a sustained period of time.

Our medical team and our partners at Schoen Clinic and TIC Health will ensure that Merrick receives the best care possible, as she begins her road to recovery. The Club prides itself as one of the leading semi-professional Women’s Clubs when it comes to player care.

Head Coach Lee Burch said:

First and foremost we are all gutted for Merrick, she is one of our most important players and we are all disappointed she will be out for a long period. Myself, the staff and all of her teammates will ensure she is supported during her lay off from action and the Club will make sure they do all they can to support her with her recovery.”

We will now support Merrick with her recovery and we are sure she will be back out on the pitch stronger than ever once she can return to action
