MK Dons U15 v Chelsea U15

Over 1200 fans came along to watch the future of football on a big stage as part of MK Dons policy of giving the youngsters a feel of what it is like to play on a league pitch.

Sadly the Dons lost with two goals from Butungu on 39 and 49 mins, the other two goals came from Solanke just before half time on 44 mins and Abraham made it four on 68.

A very impressive Callum Brittain scored a lovely goal by breaking through the defence and one on one with the keeper coolly slotted the ball home.
Both teams rotated the players although Chelsea only named two subs.

I enjoyed the game and always smile the difference in size of the lads at that age some look like grown men while others look like school boys which of course they are ! some of the quality shown at this level is pretty astounding the Dons boasted two Internationals amongst the team in Kevin Danso and Hugo Logan and it was easy to see why both have been called up.

Another player who caught my eye was Adam Hunt the young right back from Bedford who made some good passes as well as getting back to tackle impressively.
