Williams excited by Dons return

17 February 2015

After returning to stadiummk on Monday, striker George Williams has his eyes set on adding goals to his Dons account – one which he opened as a 16-year-old back in 2011.

Williams, a Dons Academy graduate, scored on his senior debut in a 6-0 victory over Nantwich Town in the FA Cup, becoming the Club’s youngest-ever goalscorer in the process.

“To this day it’s still one of the best things that's ever happened in my career,” Williams told mkdons.com. “I still think about it a lot now because it was a great moment for me and my family. Hopefully there will be a few more to come.”

Despite making 14 appearances in the Sky Bet Championship for Fulham this season, Williams has found his game time limited of late and therefore he is relishing the chance to get more minutes under his belt while in familiar surroundings.

“I’m very excited to be back. When I found I was potentially going out on loan, MK Dons was the first thought that came into my mind. I’m very happy it’s got done and now I can’t wait to get started.

“I know a lot of the squad from my time here before and that will definitely help me settle back in. I’m just looking forward to getting some more game time and hopefully helping the Dons achieve promotion.”

As well as helping the Dons in their quest for Championship football, Williams also hopes to continue impressing Wales manager Chris Coleman, who handed the 19-year-old his senior international debut back in June last year.

“I worked hard to break into the Wales senior side and, thankfully, I was given the opportunity last year. Hopefully that experience will add something to my game and only be a positive for both me and now MK Dons.

Williams continued: “I love playing for my country and doing so, has been a great experience. I can’t put into words how good people like Gareth Bale and Aaron Ramsey are – some of things they can do is just unbelievable. Playing with them and learning from is only going to benefit me.”

While most will remember Williams and his brief appearances during the 2011/12 season, the Newport Pagnell-born forward has a quick description for those who don’t.

“I’m quick, I can play anywhere in the front four,  I’m quite creative and I love scoring goals. I’ll work as hard as I can for the team and hopefully I can just add more goals to the team.”

George Williams could make his debut when the Dons travel to Colchester United on Tuesday and tickets for the match will be available to buy on the night at the Weston Homes Community Stadium, priced at £22 for adults, £16 for seniors, £17 for U21s, £13 for U18s, £4 for U16s and FREE for U11s.
