Westfield W-League | Wys confirmed out for the rest of the Jets’ season

November 21st, 2016

Newcastle Jets Westfield W-League Head Coach Craig Deans has confirmed this morning that the injury sustained by US import Kelsey Wys in yesterday’s 1-0 defeat pf Perth Glory is a season-ending one for the Washington Spirit star.

Scans conducted last night after the match have confirmed Deans worst fears with Wys suffering an ACL injury that will end her season with the Jets.

Wys fell awkwardly on her right knee early in yesterday’s match after going up to pluck a Perth Glory long ball out of the air.

Deans, as well as the rest of the Jets side, are shattered by the news with Wys being one of four high-profile US imports brought into the side to pave the way to a finals position for the Jets women.

“Obviously we are very disappointed for Kelsey. She has been a positive influence on the team for a short period of time that she has been here and it’s never nice to see a professional player to suffer a long-term injury.”

“We will miss not only her playing ability but also her personality off the field and in the change room.”

“We wish her all the best for recovery and hope to see her back playing for Washington next season,” Deans concluded.
