“I played with Barry when I was at Gillingham on loan and Andy had a spell at Swindon when I was at the club,” said Callum. “They are both very good players and this season we will be looking to not concede many goals. That is the main aim and if we keep clean sheets then we will be happy. I also want to get forward though and play the style of football that the manager wants us to play. Hopefully, the fans want to see that too.

“I spoke to quite a few people about the club before I joined and everyone gave me rave reviews about the manager and his staff. I was told that I would absolutely love it here and that I would enjoy the training. I have only trained here for one day so far, but I enjoyed it and I am really looking forward to the season and getting going properly. I obviously do not know the team that we had last season, but I know there have been big changes. The lads have told me that Neal really managed to turn it around last season and that helped the club to stay up. I am really optimistic about the season ahead.”

, Callum also said that he is aiming to reignite his career at the age of 24 after a frustrating second half to the season at Scunthorpe last season.Dons PlayerDuring the interview with Rob Cornell on

Prior to that most recent spell, Callum’s career had been on a big upward curve after he came through the ranks at Swindon and helped the club win League 2 under current Sunderland manager Paulo Di Canio.

“Joining Scunthorpe was a great opportunity to prove myself in League 1 and I started the season fairly well,” Callum added. “I broke my toe though so I was out for a while and there was a change of manager. Then when I did get back in the team and played about eight games in 21 days I ended up pulling my hamstring, which I had never done before. It was a frustrating time for me, but I did enjoy it at Scunthorpe and I wish them all the best. I think Brian Laws will do a good job.”

Callum will not have to wait too long to face his old club as The Iron will visit the Cherry Red Records Stadium on Saturday, 24 August.
