And The First Signing Of The New Season Is… Max Porter

Following the release of two centre halves and three forwards, as well as the ongoing problem of not owning a dedicated left back outright, it might surprise a few of you to learn Terry Brown’s first signing as a Football League manager is a midfielder.

No ordinary midfielder either, former England C captain Max Porter was rumoured to be signing for the Dons two years ago when his Barnet contract expired, and an article on the Bees website suggested he may have been AFCW-bound. In the end Porter ended up at Rushden, but Brown has admitted he attempted to sign Porter back in ’09, and seems to have finally got his man.

How many of us saw the England C squad last month, saw Porter’s name followed by (UNATTACHED) and thought, ‘hang on…’. It was almost too obvious, wasn’t it? Especially as the Dons are overloaded with midfielders at the moment. You have to wonder whether we may see departures? Logic would suggest non-contract James Mulley would seem to be most at risk…

With Brown jetting off to join the squad in Vegas, its unlikely we’ll hear any news until their return…
