“Enthusiastic and hard-working” - those are two traits that MK Dons supporters should expect from Mitch Hancox this season.
Hancox signed a one-year deal with the Club back in June - one of four signings made by new manager Paul Tisdale to date this summer.
Speaking to the media after his first day of on-field training at Woughton on the Green, the 24-year-old was asked to describe his game and his answer is sure to be music to the ears of MK Dons fans.
“I work very hard and I always give everything,” he said. “If I’m having a bad game, I'll make sure I’m grafting.
“I play on the left-hand side, whether that's left back, left wing-back or left wing. I can do a job in the centre of midfield too.
“I like to score goals - I got seven last season. I like to be creative, get balls into the box and push forward.
“Fans can expect an enthusiastic and hard-working player.”
Hancox spent the last two season with Macclesfield Town, with whom he enjoyed plenty of success including a National League title triumph last season.
Contrastingly, he arrives into a dressing room at Stadium MK which has suffered two relegations in the past three seasons but the Solihull-born left-footer is confident that the team can bounce back in 2018/19.
“Last season was great for me at Macclesfield but after coming in, meeting the players and staff, I an sense a real buzz around the place. I want to start the new season now really!
“I have spoken to a few of the lads who were here last season to find out what went wrong but, for all of us, it's a blank canvas.
“Everyone is raring to go. We want to do well this season and everyone is really confident.”
Mitch Hancox and MK Dons return to Stadium MK action later this month when they take on Ipswich Town and Oxford United in the space of four days at Stadium MK.
