Liverpool Ladies defender Amy Turner is set to miss the rest of the 2017-2018 season after having a minor operation to remove loose cartilage from her knee.

The Reds defender, who joined from Notts County Ladies in May 2017, has made five appearances this season for Scott Rogers’ side.

Manager Scott Rogers said: “The injury was causing Amy discomfort and affecting her when playing so we have taken the decision to get it sorted now so that Amy is back for next season. She has been excellent over the last couple of months and proved what a fantastic footballer she is as well as top defender.

“Having spoken to the medical team, getting the injury operated on now will help Amy in the long term so we have chosen to get the operation sorted now. We have seen the character shown by Amy when having far more serious injuries so have no doubts that she will come back better and stronger than ever.”
