Claudia Walker: Everton Ladies striker ruled out by hamstring surgery
Everton Ladies striker Claudia Walker will miss the rest of the Women's Super League season after requiring surgery on a hamstring injury.
Walker, 21, suffered the tear during a training match.
The England Under-23 international had played in five of Everton's top-flight games so far this term, scoring once.
"While this injury is a setback for her, we know Claudia's character will serve her well throughout her rehab," boss Andy Spence told the club website.
