Stantonbury student debuts for MK Dons!

15/08/2017

 
Congratulations to former student Sam Nombe on making both his cup and league debuts for MK Dons a couple of weeks ago.

On playing for the first team Sam told the MK Dons’ website: “I was happy to come on and make my first league appearance (against Blackpool), after making my debut on Tuesday (in the League Cup against Forest Green Rovers).

“It’s a great experience being involved in the first team. You learn so much from the players and the staff – they really help you.”

Manager Robbie Neilson told mkdons.com: “Hugo and Sam both have good potential and they are further examples of the fine work being done by our Academy.”

Director of youth Mike Dove told mkdons.com: “Robbie has been a big supporter of the youth and his arrival gave people a fresh opportunity – Hugo and Sam grabbed it and I’m delighted that their hard work has paid off.”

“Sam wasn’t a cert for an apprenticeship two years ago but he has really knuckled down and worked extremely hard to get to where he is now. He never gave up and that’s a fantastic attribute.

“Our job is to produce first-team players and to have four from the eight, including Brandon and Oran, is a fantastic achievement. It’s credit to the Academy coaches and staff – we are very proud of that.
