BRITTAIN READY TO STEP UP AT DONS
CALLUM Brittain may not yet be a household name outside of Milton Keynes, but the Dons starlet is desperate to kick on under the tutelage of Robbie Neilson.
The 19-year-old defender has burst into the first team this season, featuring in two rounds of the Carabao Cup and the first three league games this month.
A first professional goal quickly followed – the Dons’ only strike in a 1-1 draw with Oxford from the bench – and now Brittain wants to be a permanent fixture in the back line.
“It means a lot to me,” said Brittain, who spent time on loan at Icelandic side Throttur Reykjavik last term. “I’m just trying to pay back all the club has done for me.
“It’s what you dream of. When you are a youngster growing up, it’s what you want to do. When you walk out on to the pitch and you hear the crowd, you get a real buzz.
“It’s been a really enjoyable time. I played a few pre-season games and then the two cup games, which were good experiences.
“Then to come on against Oxford and score was a great moment for me, as was starting the following game against Plymouth and getting a win.
“Hopefully I can kick on.”
