Midfielder Teah Charlton has had surgery to repair a foot injury she sustained earlier this off season.

The 22-year-old is expected to transition to running at the beginning of pre-season and reintegrate back to full training before the start of the AFLW season in August. 

Adelaide Head of Women’s Football Phil Harper said to despite trying to correct the injury with a moon boot, it was decided that Charlton would require surgery.

“The surgery was a success and Teah will be in a moon boot for a few weeks,” Harper said.

“The good news is we expect her to be back to full training and availability before the season starts.

“We know Teah is willing to put in the work to put herself in the best position possible to get back to footy at the start of the season.”
