Spence laying down roots in MK

14 October 2014

Jordan Spence made good use of his weekend off as he continued the process of relocating from East London to Milton Keynes.

Following two successful loan spells at MK1 in 2013/14, Spence swapped West Ham United for the Dons on a permanent basis in the summer.

He told the media: “I’m moving to Milton Keynes so the international break gave us a chance to bring up some more bits – it was also an opportunity for the wife to tell me what to do here and there!

“The first time I came on loan I was doing the drive and then staying up over the weekend, but when I came back the second time I thought it was better for me to stay up, and I felt fresher.

“I don’t feel as comfortable travelling long distances, I want to put my feet up as soon as possible so I’m fully rested for training and games.”

The 24-year-old has played in six of the Dons’ last seven outings, helping the men from MK1 to four victories along the way, and even though the defender is pleased with how things are shaping up in 2014/15, he insists the team aren't getting ahead of themselves.

He added: “The back end of last season was disappointing. We were down to bare bones and that impacted on results, but this year the squad is stronger and there is a lot more competition for places.

“At the moment, that’s breeding good performances and the results have been pleasing so far, but no-one is getting carried away.”

Hear more from Jordan later in the week as he looks ahead to coming up former club Leyton Orient on Saturday.
