4 August 2023

MK Dons midfielder MJ Williams, who recently signed at Stadium MK during the summer, met with the press to discuss his thoughts ahead of the season opener against Wrexham AFC at the STōK Cae Ras.

MJ Williams, Graham Alexander’s fifth appointment during the summer transfer window, explained his time at Stadium MK so far before he shared his views ahead of the Wrexham fixture.
“Since I walked in, I’ve loved it.” MJ said on his transfer to the Dons, which occurred three weeks ago.
The midfielder added “It is an easy changing room to walk into, the lads have been great. And the sessions have been really good too, tough but we'll get the benefits out of that throughout the season.”
Williams had joined Alexander’s squad during the pre-season programme, which granted him a chance to be involved within the Germany pre-season tour, as well as appear in four separate friendly fixtures whilst he brandished the MK Dons shirt.

The former Bolton Wanderers player, who achieved promotion from Sky Bet League Two with the club in the 2020/21 season, then previewed the opening game as the team prepared to face The Red Dragons.
“From the outside looking in, it's been amazing, and they've signed some good players. But we have the confidence to go there and get a result.” Williams said when asked about the upcoming fixture.
The number six added “We've worked hard throughout pre-season - we've been worked hard, but we've all stood up to it and we're ready for the challenge. I’m sure the atmosphere will be really good, but it’s one for us to try and quieten down.
“If you can go there and win, it’s a massive statement. It’s also a sell-out for our fans, which is a massive boost because we’ll need them.”

Before the end of his press conference, MJ Williams provided an insight into his previous experience within League Two “You've got to have a style of play that will be effective. You come up against different teams who have different styles, and you've got to be ready for them all.
“We've got the talent in the changing room, we've worked out how we're going to play out from the back, how we'll set up defensively. We've got to be strong - it gives us a platform to go and get goals and win.
“But there will be some games where you just can't do that, and we'll have to stand up and fight. We've got to be ready to roll our sleeves up and battle, then our football can take over.”


MK Dons were allocated a total of 1,165 tickets for this fixture and all those have now been snapped up by Season Ticket holders and away members, who are set to back the team in numbers in North Wales.

The allocation of 1,165 was the Club's full and final allocation, meaning there will be no further sales for MK Dons supporters. Tickets will not be available to purchase on the day of the game.
