Kurt Aylett is nearing a return to the footy field for the first time in 12 months.
Recruited by Werribee ahead of the 2016 season, the 25-year-old midfielder has had a tough start to his time at Avalon Airport Oval, sitting out the first half of last year before seriously injuring his ankle in his senior debut against Geelong in round 15.
He has since undergone reconstructive surgery and a lengthy rehabilitation process but could be ready to resume playing with Werribee’s development side within several weeks.
Aylett is one of several Tigers who could become available over the coming rounds, with Matthew Brett, Nathan Laracy, Jake Sharp, and Jack Williams also progressing well with their recoveries.
