Report: Forest Green Rovers 1-3 MK Dons Under-18s

Young Dons claim back-to-back victories…

13 April 2023

John Bitting’s boys earn six points within a week following their back-to-back success against Brentford and Forest Green Rovers.

The young Dons travelled to Gloucestershire shortly after their 5-2 victory over the Bees on Wednesday afternoon. John Bitting and his side looked to build on their first Merit League Two win as they prepared to face the team placed above them within the table.

The desire to increase their winning ways was fulfilled by the young Dons following a 3-1 triumph over Forest Green. Three goals scored by Tommy Blennerhassett, Edwin Daffern and Joshua Adepoju secured three points within their league skirmish.

The hosts managed to score the opener of the match, but the lead overturned by MK Dons seemed too great to equal. Thus, the travelling team left with the spoils.

Back-to-back victories for the young Dons have now placed them sixth, above their recent opponents. A third consecutive win over their next adversary Southend United could see John Bitting’s ascend to fourth.


MK Dons: Stacey (Bedford 46), Scholtz (Clark-Anderson 65), Boyce, Tripp, Sinclair-Linton, Wood, Silver (Troso 65), Bombo, Adepoju, Daffern (Lewis-Burgess 75), Blennerhassett

Goals: Blennerhassett 7, Daffern 47, Adepoju 51
