Surgery to end Giant’s season

DARTMOOR football export Jeremy Cameron will miss the rest of the AFL season after opting to have surgery on his troublesome left ankle.

Greater Western Sydney officials yesterday confirmed Cameron, a 2013 All-Australian forward, would go under the knife “immediately”.

The decision means the 21-year-old will be unable to add to his 29 goals from 14 matches, although he should be ready for pre-season training in November.

Cameron, who injured the ankle against Brisbane more than a month ago, said the news capped off what had been a frustrating season.

He has also battled a right ankle injury and a perforated eardrum. The latter prevented him from flying to Perth to take on West Coast in May.

“I’ve had a lot of injuries this year. It all started in the pre-season in a practice match,” he said.

“They’ve kept me out for single weeks here and there and I’ve struggled through it a little bit. I’ve kind of called it quits. It’s going to be a lot better for me if I get (surgery) done now rather than try and play out the year and I could slowly but surely injure it more.”
