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

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

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.”
