Willo reflects on ‘memorable’ awards night

17 April 2019

Ahead of this year’s End of Season Awards, George Williams feels he’ll have his work cut out when deciding who he’ll be nominating for Player’s Player of the Year.

Williams, who was named both Player’s Player of the Year and Player of the Year back in 2016/17, believes the Annual Awards evening is always a night to remember.

“It’ll be a good evening,” the defender told iFollow MK Dons. “It’s always a nice evening, especially when we’ve done well as a team – it’ll be a good night.

“We always have a good turnout at these events - it’s always nice to spend time and mingle with the fans – I think it’s great how the Club does that.

“You get the chance to talk to sponsors and fans from different walks of life – it’s a really enjoyable evening.”

In the coming weeks, the Dons dressing room will have to vote for their Player’s Player of the Season – an award Williams says will be a hotly contested.

“I’m not even sure who I would vote for – I’ll have to think about it in the coming weeks. You have to factor in who has performed well for the team and how hard they’ve worked during the week in training.

“I’d have to have a long think about who I’d vote for because we’ve had a lot of good performances. We’ve had a lot of injuries so you may forget about them when it comes to voting, but I feel we’ve got a lot of choices to pick from this year because everyone has played so well.”

The 25-year-old added that getting recognition from both the MK Dons fans and his teammates was something that filled him with immense pride.

“Anyone will tell you, if the people you’re working with recognise you’re doing well – it’s a good feeling.

“It did mean a lot, and on the ip side, the fans see you on a Saturday, they see you playing and if they think you’re playing well – that’s nice as well.

“It was a strange season, I didn’t play much at the start, but I expected that. I managed to get into the team and thought I had quite a good season, when I did get the award it was a nice moment - it was nice to get a bit of recognition from the players and the fans.”
