Jon Lewis To Undergo Ankle Surgery

GCCC Captain, Jon Lewis is to undergo surgery on his left ankle next Thursday. This is after consultation with a surgeon who felt that this would be the best course of action in order to resolve the injury in the long term. The surgery will remove bits of bone that are causing some impingement.

Following the surgery Jon will go through an intensive rehabilitation programme which will hopefully see him returning to action after 8 to 12 weeks.

GCCC Physiotherapist, Steve Griffin: “This seems like the best solution for Jon’s ankle, and hopefully will resolve the issues that have been causing him problems over the winter months. The rehabilitation process following the surgery is very important and we will not be rushing Jon back until he is completely ready. ”
