Conor McGrandles’ season didn’t start in ideal circumstances, however, after picking up the Young Player of the Year award, the midfielder stated he’s never felt happier than he does at MK Dons.
McGrandles suffered a nasty eye injury during the opening day victory over Oldham Athletic.
After spending the best part three-months on the sideline, the Scot returned to the Dons starting XI effortlessly and became an integral part to the Club’s successful promotion push.
The 23-year-old was named the Club’s Young Player of the Year and the End of Season Awards, after picking up the accolade, McGrandles noted how happy he is with life at Stadium MK.
“I’ve never been this happy,” McGrandles told the media after he collected the award. “This has been the best season in my career so far, in terms of playing games, happiness, even when I was injured.
“This is the best group of players that I’ve had the pleasure of working with – they kept me going throughout the full season and it’s just a pleasure to work with them.
“This team can achieve all sorts. We’ve been really unlucky with injuries, if we had a full squad it would have been a bit easier than what we made it.
“I want to continue being happy and continue playing well.”
McGrandles scored one goal in his 26-apperances this season and added how he’d like to start contributing in the final third more next year.
“I think I should be scoring more goals, to get one that came in a victory – I’m happy with it. Next season though, I need to contribute with more goals.”
