Bristol City midfielder Megan Wynne could miss most of the upcoming season after sustaining an Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury in training.
The 27-year-old Welsh international winger signed for The Robins on a permanent basis earlier this summer following a successful loan spell in the South West last season.
Bristol City have this morning reported on their official club website that Wynne has suffered an ACL tear during a club training session and the player must now undergo surgery and a period of rehabilitation. Players can be sidelined with ACL injuries for around nine months meaning that Bristol City fans may not see Wynne on the pitch for the majority of this season.
Wynne initially joined Bristol City on loan from former club Tottenham Hotspur during the second half of last season. She made three appearances for The Robins in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League. Despite, Bristol City’s struggles last season, all three games in which Wynne featured were tight with her side either winning or being defeated by a single goal.
After playing just 12 minutes of top flight football for Spurs last season, Wynne will have been hoping for a fresh start at Bristol City but her cruel injury blow means that she will be made to wait to make an impact.
