NewsFaye Kirby injury update
Liverpool FC Women goalkeeper Faye Kirby is set to miss the remainder of the 2023-24 season due to an ACL injury.
Kirby sustained the problem while playing for loan club Aberdeen Women last Wednesday and Matt Beard told Liverpoolfc.com: “Faye has unfortunately done her ACL and that’s her season over now.
“It’s disappointing, we’re gutted for Faye because she’s been playing well for Aberdeen.
“It was an innocuous challenge and her own player made contact with her so we’re desperately disappointed because she was excellent since she’s been here.
“She was looking really, really sharp and we were looking forward to seeing how the first six months at Aberdeen would help her kick on, playing week in, week out.
“We’ll rally around her, we’ll be there for her and support her to get her through the rehabilitation as quick as she can.
“With these types of injuries the first thing is accepting that it’s happened and what the journey ahead is going to be.
“Faye is very calm and relaxed in most situations anyway so I think that side of her personality will help her massively.”
The No.22 joined the Reds last September and made five appearances during her debut season, including three starts in the Barclays Women’s Super League, before being named the team’s Young Player of the Year.
