A serious ankle injury has prematurely ended a breakout season at VFL level for Colac’s Campbell Floyd.

A serious ankle injury has prematurely ended a breakout season at VFL level for Colac’s Campbell Floyd.

Floyd injured his ankle in the final term of the Cats’ clash with Coburg last weekend, and scans revealed he had damaged his syndesmosis.

Colac coach Kane Leersen said he was disappointed for the defender, who had racked up 15 games for the third-placed Cats.

“Campbell’s got a high ankle sprain, so we think his season’s over,” he said.

“He’s gotten a scan and said it doesn’t look good, the recovery is usually around 12 weeks.

“He did it playing for Geelong, which is a shame because he was having an outstanding season, he was primed for a big finals series with Geelong.

“He had an exceptional pre-season and he’s really matured as a footballer, so it’s disappointing he won’t get to play finals footy.”
