Committed George raring to go

3 August 2016

George Baldock is ready to get the season started after committing his long-term future to MK Dons.

Baldock put pen-to-paper on a new two-year deal last week, one which will keep him at Stadium MK until at least June 2018, and the full-back couldn’t hide his delight when speaking to MK Dons PlayerHD about the news.

“I’m obviously delighted to be staying at MK Dons,” he said. “The Gaffer has been speaking to me about it for a while, so to get it over the line is brilliant – now I can just concentrate on the season and hopefully it’s a successful one.

“Hopefully I’ll enjoy my time here even more this year, if we have another successful season like the one before last.”

“I love it here. I love the manager, the coaching staff and the boys. The fans are brilliant and have taken to me ever since I made my debut and long may that continue. I live five minutes away from the stadium as well and the facilities at the stadium are Premier League standard.

“I’ve had a taste for (Championship football) so I now I just want to really kick on and experience it again. It would be great to experience it with MK Dons next year and I don’t see why that won’t be the case.”

Having had a taste of football in the second tier during the second-half of last season, Baldock is eager to get back to that level and the 23-year-old believes there is no reason why he won’t be there in 2017 with the men from MK1.

The new deal comes following a breakout 2015/16 campaign for Baldock, who shone during a loan spell at Oxford United before impressing in 15 Sky Bet Championship appearances for the Dons.
