Samir Carruthers made the decision to turn his loan spell from Aston Villa, from the previous season, into a permanent move to MK Dons last stadium and you would say that this paid off?

Obviously, like any player, Carruthers would want to play at the highest possible level but the likelihood is he wouldn’t have made too much of an impact on the Villa first-team this season would he? He’s certainly made an impact at the stadium:mk though with him helping us into the Championship.

He’s told the Official Website that he came to the club knowing what he had signed up for and thought we could go up but did admit he didn’t think it would end in automatic promotion, as it did on Sunday.

‘It’s been an unbelievable season and one to remember.

‘I knew what I was coming into when I signed here – I knew we wanted to get promoted and that we’d be a dominant force.

‘In truth, I didn’t believe that this would happen and in my head I was just thinking of the play-offs and, if we got there, make sure we’re on a great run. I just thought we were building good momentum for the play-offs but we don’t have to worry about that now!’

Carruthers went onto praise the support of the fans this season, with over 16,000 in attendance for the five-one thrashing we handed Yeovil on Sunday that not only saw us secure runners-up spot, with Preston losing at Colchester, but also saw us get over the line for 100-goals this season in League 1.

This support from the stands, and the backing he’s got from the staff, is something that he also played a part in helping him this season, with him ‘buzzing’ at the moment.

‘The fans were unbelievable and the atmosphere was unreal. When the atmosphere is like that, it makes you play better and, for me, when I hear the crowd cheering what I do, it gives me more confidence.

‘I’m thankful to all the fans and the staff – everyone has been a massive help for me and the team this season. I’m just buzzing!’

I was going to turn thoughts to next season…. But lets keep enjoying this promotion moment a little longer first!
