Read the thoughts of Captain Gaz Dean:-
It has been a few weeks since I last wrote. Since then there have been ups and downs. Our league form of five wins in a row put us in a nice position in the league to then find ourselves coming away from Bradford well beaten on the day. As a group we need to learn that we are not just good enough to turn up to a stadium and win, we did not do the basics well enough throughout.
Gaz Dean: "A big thanks to the fans ..."
Aaron Williams is talking to The Red and White on his birthday! He has just scored twice in the defeat of Blyth Spartans and Kevin Wilkin’s on-loan striker is brimming with the confidence of a striker who has scored in six successive league and FA Cup games.
Here Ben Tilney talks about his career to date at MK Dons and his time on loan at Brackley. This first appeared in The Red & White on 23 September:
At 20, left-back Ben Tilney has a big footballing future ahead of him. With MK Dons since the age of 8 coming through the club’s junior and academy ranks into the first team squad, Ben made 12 appearances for the first team last season including 11 starts. He even scored on his debut away at Newport County in the cup and quite a special goal it was too firing in from 20 yards!
While the action we all love is of course out on the pitch, there is also a world beyond of stats, facts and records that can fascinate and intrigue us. The win away in August at North Ferriby United threw up a rare moment for the record books. Jimmy Armson was on the score-sheet in Saints’ 5-0 win, hitting the back of the net no fewer than four times in 14 second half minutes as his side cut loose.
