Despite featuring just three times for MK Dons, Josh Tymon has already made an impact on the squad with his pace and determination down the left causing issues for opposition defenders.
At just 18-years-old, Tymon has experienced moments in football that some professionals can only dream of.
He’s already played against Manchester United three times, marked Eden Hazard, and pulled on the England shirt on 13 separate occasions at youth level.
The Hull-born defender signed on at Stadium MK in January as he looks to help the Dons avoid relegation while also experiencing first-team football at a competitive level.
Meeting with the media ahead of Saturday’s clash with Charlton Athletic, Tymon praised the impact Dan Micciche has had on the side despite being in charge of the Club for a short period of time.
“The manager has been great for us so far – he’s really positive,” Tymon told iFollow MK Dons.
“You’ve already seen a few different formations under him and we’re all desperate to get that first win – especially for him [Dan Micciche] and Keith [Millen].
“The spirit is still high. When you find yourself in a relegation battle, the mood can be very low, but I think this set of players and staff are very positive.
“We go about our business well and they’re telling us to keep playing the way we’re playing. Hopefully, in the next few weeks, our luck will change. Given our attitudes – I think it will.
After securing his loan deal, Tymon joined fellow youth internationals Ike Ugbo, Marcus Tavernier and Callum Brittain. He feels the relationship he built with the trio, in particular, Ugbo and Tavernier can only benefit the Dons.
“Marcus and I have a good playing relationship as we’ve played with each other for about a year now.
“I also went away with Ike in the summer so we’ve got an understanding of where we are and where we want to be on the pitch.
“We know each other’s game, we link up well and hopefully, we can do it again on Saturday.”
Although during his time at MK1 results haven’t gone the way he’d of liked, Tymon is certainly enjoying his football and is determined to help the Dons escape relegation come the end of the season.
“I’m really enjoying playing for this team. I’ve played wing-back at Stoke and Hull and class myself as an attacking full-back so I’m really enjoying that position.
“I’m on loan here – but I’m here to help as best I can. It’s not the best situation, but we’ve got the players to get us out of it.”
Tymon concluded, “We’re a good team, and I just think we need to keep believing”
