MK Dons forward Brandon Thomas-Asante has spoken of his pride at being named the Club’s Academy Player of the Year.
Speaking after receiving his award at the Player of the Year Awards on Tuesday night, he told mkdons.com: “It feels such a privilege and I’m thankful for the opportunity. Hopefully I can kick on from here and achieve more.”
Thomas-Asante scored his first senior goal during the Dons' home win against non-league Spennymoor Town in November.
He said: “My highlight of the season was scoring in the FA Cup. I love the feeling of scoring and to score at home was amazing.”
The 18-year-old is pleased with his progress but insists he won't be resting on his laurels.
He said: “I definitely want to try and cement a regular place in the first team next season and try and improve and be the best I can.
“My time has been going really well and I’ve been enjoying it. I would like to thank everyone who has supported me this season.”
