Miles Leaburn grateful to Charlton Athletic for sending him on six-week rehab programme at St George’s Park

Miles Leaburn is spending six weeks at St George’s Park as he continues his rehabilitation from a serious hamstring injury.

The 20-year-old Charlton striker, who had been attracting Premier League interest after an impressive start to last season, underwent surgery in December.

Leaburn has been sent to the training base of the England national team to work with Game Changer Performance, who are performance and rehabilitation specialists.

“Being out this long you realise how much you miss it and enjoy playing football,” the forward, who has scored 20 goals in 58 senior appearances for the Addicks, told the club’s official website.

“I love being out there showing what I can do – tricks and goals. I can’t wait to be back out there.

“The club has been really helpful sending me here, making sure I get the best possible care for my hamstring – getting it back to what it was in terms of strength-wise.

“This whole thing was set up by them and I’m very, very grateful. These are the best facilities possible and really good staff.”

Charlton’s medical department is under the jurisdiction of Will Abbott, who arrived from Brighton in January as director of performance services.

Abbott said: “As a lot of footballers up and down the country are on a beach relaxing somewhere, Miles has been working really hard regaining his fitness and completing his rehabilitation programme.

“His attitude, work ethic and professionalism throughout the course of his rehabilitation has been second to none.
He’s back out on the pitch now and I imagine starting to feel a lot more like a footballer again after a long time spent in the gym.

“It’s really, really important at this stage of his rehabilitation that he starts to progress on to his pitch-based work.”

Leaburn was released by Chelsea at the age of 16 and joined Charlton. He had spells with them and Arsenal before signing for the Blues at the age of nine.

His father Carl also played for Charlton, making 376 appearances for the club.
