Dons to play three games in Dublin

30 June 2016

MK Dons will play two friendlies and one behind-closed-doors match in Ireland next month.

Karl Robinson’s men, who returned to work earlier this week, will travel to Dublin on Wednesday 6th July for a week-long training camp.

They will train on Thursday, Friday and Saturday and each day will include three sessions designed to improve the players’ fitness – stamina work on the beach, football-based sessions on the pitch and further strength and conditioning training in the gym.

Then, after a recovery day on Sunday, the Dons will play three matches across three days, starting with their annual clash against St. James’s Gate at the Iveagh Grounds on Monday 11th – kick-off 7.45pm.

Robinson’s side will then travel to County Louth on Tuesday 12th to take on Irish Premiership side Drogheda United at Hunky Dory Park – the Dons previously faced Drogs in July 2014. Kick-off is also at 7.45pm.

Ticket details for both games will be confirmed in due course.

Finally, on Wednesday 13th, the Dons will play a behind-closed-doors match against an unnamed side.

They will then return to UK on Thursday to prepare for their double-header against Cambridge City and St. Ives Town on Saturday 16th – the team’s first two friendlies on home soil.

mkdons.com will have full coverage of the Dons’ matches in Ireland, while updates will be provided via the social media channels.
