The MK Dons Academy have reached the Final of the Catch Up Cup - a tournament encouraging scholars to catch up on their academic studies over the summer holidays.

Launched by online learning provider, YourFavouriteTeacher, the competition is primarily at players moving into the Under-16s next season and aims to re-establish positive routines around learning and prepare young players for their GCSEs.

The players earn points by completing work on the GCSE syllabuses across all subjects as well as gaining bonus points by performing football skill challenges.

After being Derby, Watford and Crystal Place in the quarter finals, the Dons have now beaten Brighton & Hove Albion in the semi-finals to make the final.

The Dons' team have amassed over 800 hours of dedicated learning over the past two weeks of the competition which prepares them well for their return to school next week.

The final will take place this week against Portsmouth.
