Chaddy: stadiummk games stand-out

10 June 2014

Luke Chadwick says it was a privilege to play in front of the Dons supporters at stadiummk.


“I enjoyed playing in front of the Dons fans in a lovely stadium, so although I can’t single out one, the home games definitely stand-out as the ones I enjoyed the most.”

“It was a new club, it felt really good, the chairman is a great man and everything fell into place. The gaffer was also a great person to work for.”

“It’s far and away the longest time I’ve spent at a club,” he told mkdons.com. “From the moment I signed on loan from Norwich City, it felt right.

The 32-year-old playmaker departed for hometown team Cambridge United last week after a six-year spell in Milton Keynes, but he insists he will look back on his time with great fondness.
Chadwick is in no doubt about his favourite goal during his time with the Dons though.

He said: “My favourite goal would probably be the back-heel against Leyton Orient while I was still on loan - I enjoyed that one. 

“People will still wonder whether I meant it or not but fortunately I did. That was a nice goal and one that sticks in my mind.”

The former Manchester United man won back-to-back Player of the Year awards in 2009/10 and 2010/11 – something he is very proud of.

“It was great to win the two awards although the first time I won it, it was off the back of a bad season,” he said. “I’ve always concentrated on the team rather than individual accolades.”

Looking ahead to his new challenge with the U’s - the Club he helped achieve promotion to the Football League whilst on loan last season - he commented: “I always dreamt of playing there. I used to go and watch them as a kid so I thought while I wasn’t playing as much in Milton Keynes, it was time to make it happen and fortunately it all fell into place. 

“We got promotion at Wembley which was an incredible day. My whole family was there and it was really brilliant.
  “We’re in uncharted territory now - the Club hasn’t been in the league for nine years. We’ve got a strong squad which is full of quality and some good young players so we’ll see how it goes early on, but I’m confident we can be successful again next


season.”
