Ridley's surgery a success

Essendon Football Club defender Jordan Ridley's ankle surgery has been a success with the young Bomber set to return to full training in February.

High Performance Manager Justin Crow said Ridley's recovery had started well and Bombers fans can expect to see him ready to go at the start of the season.

"He had surgery on his right ankle on Tuesday and it went very well," Crow said.

"He should be progressing back into full training in six to eight weeks."

Ridley was selected with pick 22 in the 2016 NAB AFL Draft and is yet to make his senior debut.
