BRIT­TAIN READY TO STEP UP AT DONS

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO - By Char­lie Bennett

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.”
