Huddersfield full-back Ashton Golding will miss the start of the Super League season after suffering a shoulder injury in pre-season training.

The 24-year-old Jamaican international will undergo surgery on his shoulder and the Giants say he is due to return to action towards the back end of May.

Huddersfield 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 has 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 same in recovering this time with the help of our medical department.”
