Mason feeling at home in MK

Striker settling in quickly with the Dons...

13 July 2019

Joe Mason says settling into life at MK Dons has been the easiest transition he’s enjoyed in his career so far.

Mason only arrived Stadium MK last month, following his departure from Premier League side Wolverhampton Wanderers, but the 28-year-old is already starting to feel at home with his new Club.

“It has been very good so far,” Mason said in his pre-season press conference from the Dons’ training base at Bisham Abbey.

“It can be quite daunting coming to a new team but the lads have made it really easy to settle in and already feel a part of the group. The dressing room has been really good - it is probably the easiest dressing room I've ever come into.

“They're a tight group here and you can tell people have been together for a while. There are some good players here too and hopefully it will be a good year for us.”

There are just three weeks until the 2019/20 season gets underway on August 3rd, with Paul Tisdale’s men set to travel to Gigg Lane to take on Bury in their opening game of the campaign.

With the likes of Sunderland, Ipswich Town, Bolton Wanderers and Portsmouth among the sides in the third tier this season, Sky Bet League One is set to be as tough as ever and Mason knows full well that the Dons have a testing 10 months ahead.

“It'll be a tough year. Leagues get better and better each year. There are some big teams that have come down but also some big teams in here already too.

“It will be hard but we've got a solid group here and we'll be confident. I'm not one for big predictions but we'll see what happens - we’ll look to make a solid start in the opening game and go from there.”
