Angus MacDonald Extends Dons Stay

Angus MacDonald has extended his contract with the Dons, after signing on for a further two years with the club.

The influential defender who arrived from Swindon Town during the January transfer window, has been impressive at the heart of the Reds backline forming a solid partnership with Mattie Pollock and Liam Scales and helping the side to achieve seven wins in a row.

MacDonald has made over 300 career appearances for Reading, Barnsley, Hull City and Rotherham Utd and will now ply his trade with the Dons until the summer of 2025.

“It’s great to get the extension finalised and I am really happy to be staying at the club, where I feel so at home,” MacDonald said.

He added: “I had some good options back in England, but I want to continue on this journey with this group of lads because I really do think we are building something special.

“The fans have also been fantastic to me and everyone I have met has made me feel so welcome.”

Manager Barry Robson said: “There is no doubt Angus has had a positive impact on the team since his arrival in January. He clearly brings a wealth of experience and has already become an important senior member of the squad.

“We need leaders all over the pitch as we prepare for the final five games of the season and the news that Angus has committed his future to the club will be a welcome boost to both the dressing room, and for the supporters.”
