George's Player of the Year glee

7 May 2017

George Williams says he was ‘over the moon’ to be named Player of the Year at the Club’s Awards ceremony at Stadium MK.

Williams took home the top gong following an impressive 2016/17 campaign during which he established himself as a key member of Robbie Neilson’s side, performing in a number of different positions and earning plenty of plaudits for his consistency and dependability.

“I’m really happy,” the defender told MK Dons PlayerHD after receiving the award. “It’s been a good season for me to get the award means a lot to me.

“When I first came back here I wasn’t in the team as much but I knew that would be the case to start off with. I eventually got a chance and was able to hold down a position.

“It’s been good to play regularly since then. Obviously we wanted to finish higher as a team but I’ve been enjoying my football and we’re all looking forward to kicking on next season.”
