Grigg discusses his future

Will Grigg has scored eight goals this season and provided another three assists, all of which have come during his loan spell at MK Dons after he continued to struggle while wearing the red and white stripes of Sunderland.

The Northern Ireland scored four goals against Swindon Town recently and his goal against Gillingham Town was named MK Don’s goal of the season and the club’s end of season awards.

Speaking to MKFM at the awards ceremony, Grigg discussed his future and said, as it stands, he is due back at Sunderland for pre-season training but does not know what the future holds:

It’s one of those things, I’ve got another year left at Sunderland and as far as I’m aware at the moment I’ll be going back there in pre-season.

Football’s a funny game, you never know what’s going to happen, there’s obviously lots of factors to go in if anything’s going to happen, but the support from the fans has been unbelievable from the first day I came back.

That was part of the reason why I wanted to come back, because of my rapport with the fans and my relationship with the club from previous times, so it’s great to be back and you never know what’s going to happen in the future.

Trial duo score on debut

Sunderland under-18s had a fantastic 4-3 win at Everton yesterday, with two of the goals coming from trialists Shane Temple and Ethan Kachosa.

AFC Sudbury forward Temple has joined the club on trial after recently undergoing similar spells with Scottish Champions Rangers and League Two duo Oldham Athletic and Southend United.

The 18-year-old became one of the youngest players to ever play in the National League when he made his debut for Braintree Town aged just 16 years and two months in March 2019 and he was still only 17 when he scored all four goals for Sudbury in their 4-2 FA Cup win over Harborough Town in September.

Kachosa, who mainly plays at full-back, won a penalty for Sunderland’s opener and then added the team’s fourth is from Leeds United where he has featured for their under-23s in the EFL Trophy this season and won the Leeds United Academy player’s player of the year award in 2019.
