Brandon focused on future

8 November 2016

Brandon Thomas-Asante is only looking forward after a week in which he found the net four times at Stadium MK.

Last Tuesday the young professional scored a stunning hat-trick in MK Dons’ FA Youth Cup success over AFC Hornchurch and he followed that memorable occasion up by netting his first senior goal in the Emirates FA Cup victory against Spennymoor Town.

“I’m obviously happy to have been given the opportunity to play in both competitions,” Thomas-Asante told MK Dons PlayerHD after the 3-2 win on Saturday. “I was motivated to try and make my mark on and I’m happy I did.


“I’m also pleased we have someone like Richie who was willing to give me a chance after seeing my hat-trick. I hope I did him justice.”

“The fans have been really supportive of me and the feedback they gave me (after my FA Youth Cup hat-trick) motivated me to get another goal for them (on Saturday).

“Scoring is one of the main parts of my game. It’s what I like to do and I always bias towards getting a goal. Fortunately, it came off this time.”

“I just made sure I was in and around the area. I gambled and luckily the ball came back to me, so I just finished it off – I just looked straight up to my parents and family – I was so happy.

Thomas-Asante’s goal in the victory over Spennymoor may not rank up alongside his three excellent finishes in the FA Youth Cup but the 17-year-old still enjoyed the moment – one he was keen to share with his family who were watching in the stands.
