Ashton Golding to miss start of season

Ashton Golding to miss start of season

Huddersfield Giants fullback Ashton Golding will miss the start of the 2021 Betfred Super League season after undergoing shoulder surgery.

Golding joined the Giants from local rivals Leeds Rhinos ahead of the 2020 season and went on to make 11 appearances for Huddersfield scoring twice against Hull FC and Hull Kingston Rovers, respectively.

Giants Head Coach, Ian Watson, said: “While it’s obviously disappointing that Ashton has sustained this injury, we expect him to make a full recovery and return stronger than ever. 

“We expect to see Ashton return to the field in late-May, but in the meantime, we will be working to make sure he improves himself and hits the ground running when he returns to Betfred Super League action.

“Ashton is a strong individual who’s come back better from injury before and last season he was tremendous after his return from injury, showing the Giants fans how good a player he is, and we back him to do the dame in recovering this time with the help of our medical department.”
