St Kilda's Hamill out for rest of season

St Kilda have offered to give Aaron Hamill "every opportunity" to play next year after the former captain was ruled out for the rest of the AFL season following knee surgery.

The tough but ageing forward, who turns 30 next month, suffered knee problems in a nine-game season in 2006 and has not played a senior game this year.

"St Kilda's Aaron Hamill yesterday underwent arthroscopic surgery after consultation with his surgeon," St Kilda said in a statement.

"The results have indicated that he will be prevented from playing for the remainder of the 2007 AFL season.

"How his knee responds to the rehabilitation process will determine Aaron's ability to return to AFL football in 2008 and beyond."

Saints general manager of football Ken Sheldon added: "The club is providing Aaron with every opportunity to play football and will offer every support for Aaron in his endeavours to return to the game next year."

St Kilda coach Ross Lyon said earlier this week that it had been a "really tough 18 months" for the popular clubman and ex-Blue.
