MK Dons’ Brendan Galloway spoke of his delight after being named LFE League 1 Apprentice of the Year at last night’s Football League Awards.
The defender received the award at the gala ceremony on Sunday evening in front of over 600 guests from clubs, sponsors and the football industry.
Galloway, who has featured seven times for the first-team this season while also adding two England Under-18 caps to his name, became the first MK Dons player to win the award after seeing off competition from Preston North End’s Josh Brownhill and Colchester United’s Samuel Szmodics.
After collecting his award, Galloway said: “I have to thank the manager Karl Robinson for giving me the chance. This season has been great in the first-team, especially scoring in the FA Cup.
“But, I’m still trying to complete my college course and give to the community while I’m playing.”
The celebrations don’t end there for Galloway as he turns 18 today and everyone at the Football Club would like to wish him a very happy birthday, as well as congratulate him on his award.
The Club would also like to congratulate goalkeeper David Martin on finishing runner-up in the PFA Player in the Community Award category.
