The MK Army sang and cheered as their heroes filled the stage, hearing from chairman Pete Winkelman, manager Karl Robinson, captain Dean Lewington, top-scorer Will Grigg, Player of the Year Carl Baker and Tottenham-bound Dele Alli.

Speaking on stage, Mr Winkelman said: “For years, we were talking about a dream of building the stadium and bringing professional football to Milton Keynes.

“Since then, I’ve been telling people we’re getting the stadium finished. This year, you have to take your hats off to the players and staff because they made this year really important.”
