Randall: Thankful for Dons lifeline

20 March 2014

Mark Randall is eager to make the most of the lifeline given to him by MK Dons manager Karl Robinson.

And now Randall, who enjoyed a loan spell with the Dons back in 2010 while on the books at Arsenal, is desperate to make the most of this new opportunity and repay the faith shown in him by Robinson and the Football Club.

The Milton Keynes-based player told mkdons.com: “I was over in Italy for four months but I came back because it didn’t really work out.

“I then got in touch with Karl and he said I could train with Mike (Dove) and if I did well, train with him. I thought I trained well and eventually Mike spoke to the Gaffer for me and it just went from there.

“I was so grateful to him for letting me train and he’s offered me lifeline with this contract until the end of the season. I owe him and the Club massively and hopefully I can repay them in the few games between now and the season.”

Randall initially agreed to join the Dons prior to the trip to Swindon Town but a delay in receiving international clearance meant the talented playmaker couldn’t complete the move until last Friday.

An unused substitute in the defeat to Peterborough United on the weekend, Randall will now be hoping to feature in the coming games as Robinson’s men look to maintain their push for a play-off place.

He added: “I’d love to help the Dons get back into the play-offs in any way I can, whether that’s coming on as a substitute or from the start – I’ll always give 100 percent.”

“This deal is a lifeline for me and when now I’ve got this chance I’ve got to take it with both hands.”
