Football News Update: Milton Keynes Dons Sign Chesterfield’s Laurence Maguire

In a significant move for the upcoming football season, Milton Keynes Dons have secured the signing of centre-back Laurence Maguire from Chesterfield on an undisclosed-length contract. The 27-year-old, who is the younger brother of England defender Harry Maguire, arrives in Buckinghamshire after a successful loan spell with Crawley Town, where he helped the team earn promotion to League One by defeating MK Dons 8-1 on aggregate in the semi-finals.

Maguire joins the Dons on a free transfer, becoming the club’s third summer signing after the arrivals of Connor Lemonheigh-Evans and Luke Offord. This move comes as Chesterfield, Maguire’s former club, also secured promotion to League Two without him, winning the National League.

“Laurence is a hugely talented defender. As a centre-back, he possesses all the physical qualities you need to succeed at this level. He’s also very composed on the ball with a sharp footballing brain.” – Mike Williamson, Dons head coach

The former Chesterfield academy product, who has been on the Spireites’ books since 2014, made his first appearance for the club in August 2016 and has since amassed an impressive 168 appearances.

This move bolsters the Dons’ defensive options as they prepare for the upcoming season, which will see them compete in League Two. Fans and football enthusiasts alike will be eager to see how Laurence Maguire’s arrival will impact the team’s performance in the race for promotion.
