Huge injury blow for Villa defender
 Women's Football News 11 Mar 2014
Aston Villa have been rocked by the news that rising star Emily Owen is out for the season. 
Owen was injured in the pre-season encounter with Bristol Academy and, despite hopes that the problem wouldn't be too severe, the prognosis was serious with anterior cruciate ligament damage pinpointed.
That means that Owen - a summer signing from Sporting Club Albion - will not compete in the Villa first term in the Women's Super League 2.
Boss Ron Mellor was hoping to call on the speed and skill of Owen at centre-back, alongside fellow defenders Jade Richards, Dani Petrovic, Erin Vaughan and Maizie Baker, but now he will have to do without the impressive 19-year-old.
Head Coach Joe Hunt said: "It's a big blow to lose Emily. She has really impressed in the past few weeks and I know Ron was looking to use a great deal of her this term at centre half.
"We had hoped the injury might not be too serious but our worse fears were realised when the scans came back.
"Emily is gutted, of course, but she's a really strong character and a positive person. She will do her rehab but I am sure she will still be a big voice in the dressing room anyway.
"Emily is really well liked within the group and while she may not play the games, she will be a cheerleader in camp. She's the sort of player who will be in there geeing the girls up if they're down or praising them if they're up.
"I am sure she will still play a big part."
