Kay always keen to stay

3 June 2014

Antony Kay says he had no hesitation in extending his stay at stadiummk by a further year.

The 32-year-old was hugely impressive in his 34 appearances for the Dons in 2013/14, prompting Karl Robinson to offer the colossal centre-back a new contract.
“I’m happy MK Dons wanted to keep me and I’m happy to stay,” he told 

“I didn’t really want to speak to any other club because there is potential here, which is why I signed in the first place. Hopefully we can move forward this year.

After a strong start to the season, Kay was forced to fight back from a hip injury which kept him out for 10 weeks - something he did in style.

He said: “It was frustrating getting injured as I thought I began the season well and we were getting good results.

“My injury came along and I was out for longer than I thought I would be. That was annoying. It was the first proper injury I’ve ever had, but I had to get to grips with that and I was eager to get back.”

Before he jetted off on a family holiday, Kay kept himself busy alongside a fellow team-mate.

He said: “Since we broke up, me and Pottsy did our UEFA B badges – I’m going to be the next manager of MK Dons!”

Looking ahead, the Yorkshireman has his eyes firmly set on the fixture release on Wednesday 18th June and one team in particular!
“Barnsley will be first fixture I look for!” he said. “Since I left in 2007, I’ve never played a competitive game against them so that’s going to be enjoyable.”
