Russ: More to come from Player of the Year Gilbey

The boss on his number 8...

30 June 2020

Russell Martin believes there is even more to come from back-to-back Player of the Year winner Alex Gilbey.

Gilbey was voted, by the supporters, as MK Dons’ standout performer during the 2019/20 campaign, 12 months after he received the same recognition for his displays in the 2018/19 promotion-winning season.

Speaking on MKFM’s MK Dons Virtual Awards Night, boss Martin was full of praise for his number 8 but hopes that he will be even better next term.

“Huge congratulations to Alex,” Martin said following the announcement.

“He’s been a really big part of what we’re doing and what we’re trying to build on and off the pitch and I’ve told him recently how grateful we are for that.

“Some of his performances [last season] were outstanding but I still think he’s got loads more to come and I’ve told him that.

“Hopefully we’ll be able to get even more out of him during this season coming. I’m looking forward to seeing that!”
