Today marks three years since Callum Brittain's first goal for the club

Callum Brittain feels like a part of the furniature at MK Dons these days, despite technically being a summer signing.

The 22-year-old has been a regular in the side since his first ever goal for the club, three years ago today (September 2) in the 1-1 draw with Oxford United. Racking up more than 100 appearances and four goals since, Brittain is one of the more experienced Dons players in the dressing room now.

However, still just 22, Brittain admits that goal against Oxford feels a long time ago, though he still thinks of himself as one of the younger members of the squad.

"I still feel like one of the younger players, even if I do talk to Lewie and it makes me feel a lot older!" he joked. "That goal feels like a million years ago but it's still one of the best moments in my career so far.

"I like seeing some of the younger lads coming through too and remembering that it was me once, it's a bit of a throwback!"
